Experience Level1/5
Remarksit was amazing, something I've seen on TV but never experienced anything like it. It was so fast. I felt like it was like a space ship entering the earths atmosphere. North of Tampa but not sure where (Lutz, maybe) Then realized it must have been a comet. Definitely not an aircraft.
