RemarksA glowing smoke trail as wide as a full moon. Started white then turned light blue (saw smoke in the blue part) as it got wider and seamed to explode, Then got skinnier and went from light blue to a whiter color and skinnier then disappeared behind Freel Peak. Widest trail I've ever seen. Explosion was in the middle of the trail.
