Observer
NameJim S
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was startled by Its appearance! There was a very thin cloud cover which allowed me to see it in maybe a somewhat dimmer brightness than normal? It was quite an obvious and spectacular occurance for me! It seemed to have a "comma" shape to It, with a brighter "ball" front to it and a very short trailing portion!
