Reports Report 2012a (Event 2012-2017)

Name Chris N
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I've been watching meteor showers for 15 years, often trying to coordinate my backpacking trips so that I can be in as much darkness and away from city lights as possible. This was the first time I've ever seen an explosion in the sky lit everything up locally for a second or 2. Was amazing.
