Observer
NameChris M
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt seemed close because it had so much detail. I feel I could see a actual ball of fire shoot across the sky. It was not over in a split second. You could have told somebody that was not paying attention to "look up" and they would have seen it without a doubt.
