This report has been linked to the following event: Event 9305-2022
Observer
NameKnute M
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI spend a lot of time looking at the stars and this event was the most vivid and beautiful thing I have ever seen in the night sky. Right above me was what seemed like a huge fireball and was burning as hot a steel and completely disintegrated right there in front of me. It felt as if for 4 or 5 seconds it was just myself and the universe, I couldn’t look away. Absolutely amazing, I hope my kids someday experience something as powerful as that.
