Reports Report 1071ac (Event 1071-2017)

Name Terri N
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks I have seen ''shooting stars" before but this was nothing in comparison, it was so big, clear and extraordinarily bright (it was just daybreak, and this was brighter than any star, or shooting star I have seen in the dark) with a hue of light green at the tip, it traveled left to right leaving a trail of gleaming light behind it, (that seemed to stay just as bright) then it looked as though it went back in the opposite direction it was traveling, for just a split second, then the huge explosion of did not linger, after the explosion it was gone, like it was never there...most amazing thing I've ever seen.
