Reports Report 3502a (Event 3502-2017)

Name Yue W
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I have uploaded that video taken by the dash cam. I should point out that the dash cam has a wide angle lens(~165 deg of viewing angle) thus objects would show up smaller in the video. To my eyes the bolide was much brighter than it shown in the video.
