Reports Report 454br (Event 454-2017)

Name Soko P
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I used to teach earth science in high. This was awesome. It was so big and bright, I was working on my computer with the TV on and bright lights all around me and it still caught my eye. The trajectory of it seemed to curve as I watched it.. Unfortunately, It was quite near the horizon when it came into my field of view. So cool!!
