Reports Report 1298cz (Event 1298-2017)

Name Matthew B
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I've seen a similar phenomena of the same color near the same place around the same time at night flying the same direction. Both were very bright and blue. The first time was less than a year ago. In both instances, I was just minding my own business when all of a sudden, I saw a bright blue flash. I looked up and there was a fireball. Both only lasted a few seconds. I must be pretty lucky. :)
