Observer
NameSadie A
Experience Level3/5
RemarksAt first I thought it was a planet. I realized it was moving, so I assumed a plane coming directly at me. Then I realized it was moving too quickly to be a plane, and it disappeared about 5 or 6 seconds later. It was bright enough to be seen at dusk in the eastern sky.
