Reports Report 3837fp (Event 3837-2017)

Name Bernadette S
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks Was just so straight, fiery and glowing even a bit black at the ball end. And bizarre to see in bright daylight, but this added to clarity of observation. Pls note: was facing east and it came north to south across the sky, about 300 ft off ground, scared birds.
