Name Heidi H
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks This was like nothing I have ever seen!! So much larger and closer than any shooting star...big ball of fire, edges sparking like a 4th of July sparkler...I lost sight of it through the tree line- just a quick glimpse as it passed over the road in front of me.
