Observer
NameTimothy R
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThe trail was certainly brighter than any star that was in the sky, especially where we live. There was a long, almost shimmering white tail behind the brightest part of the object. It looked almost like a very long-lasting firework, but with no noise. If I held my hand out straight in front of me, I'd say the tail was about as long in the sky as my index finger.
