Observer
NameKaren A
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was absolutely amazing! I thought it was totally unworldly experience at first. I’ve never seen a shorting star be so bright & so wide ! It didn’t dissipate as it moved & last a long time & faded slowly all at once. It looked like a cut in the night sky.
