Reports Report 4635hc (Event 4635-2016)

Name John G
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks It was the most phenomenal sight I have ever seen. My girlfriend who's back was turned away from the window described it as if someone parked in our yard with their high beams aimed at the window. She was almost asleep and it startled her. I thought, at first, (before I saw it in motion), that a nearby transformer exploded. We were so amazed that we drove around to see if we could find it; we had no idea of its size or where it would've landed. I would very much like to be a part of contributing any additional information that would be of help.
