Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I see shooting stars constantly since I always look up to the sky. The colors were absolutely amazing not like what I've seen before. For 1 second I thought it was coming towards me. I am still so amazed by what I saw. It was so far at first, so high above. Interesting it was small a regular shooting star I thought. THE INSTANT I LOOKED UP, at EXACTly THE POINt I LOOKED up at, It appeared. Than it grew into something huge and amazing.

Remarks Glowing Train- This Glowing Bright, Huge Green-Emerald Fireball started small, and way far up straight above the sky. The Glowing Green Color was the same but it came more close and It Grew more brighter than when I first seen it start to fall, and also as it drew nearer and lower half way across the sky, it began to look as if it were skipping downward Towards the ground, like a rock when skipping threw a pond, and also, right behind this long and illuminating Green glowing streak, as it grew close and grew wider with each skip it made, there was a beautiful brilliant, Fiery red Glow behind the bright green color it left behind with each skip

Like a fireworks of lights in the sky of amazing colors i got to see
