Reports Report 4235ds (Event 4235-2017)

Observer
Name Meri M
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks The location of viewing involved a hillside at which I lost site of the fireball. I was so excited to have the experience and wished I could have seen the path to the end. The tail was rainbow colored and the size was larger and thicker than any I had seen before. One evening years ago, I saw a rainbow encircling a full moon and thought I experienced a once in a lifetime sight, and now this, ...I feel very blessed! It pays to keep looking up.
