NameMystica Z
Experience Level2/5
RemarksAt first we thought it was just a shooting star but it got larger and brighter turned from white to orange with a smoke trail behind it. We've been stargazing a few nights a week for several years spotting satellites, constellations, shooting stars, etc and have NEVER seen anything like this. Truly amazing!
