Reports Report 1298fj (Event 1298-2017)

Name Marc L
Experience Level 4/5
Remarks I had just installed the new 5 camera "Skycam Array' yesterday and was watching the screen when this one came in. I gotta say that the new camera array is working out better than I expected as I also have this green Bolide on the old camera system and the color is way better on this new setup. I will create another compilation video of all the camera views later as the Green Bolide is not blocked by the palm tree in the other views. Enjoy your Bolide! Leave a comment on the Meteor Marc youtube chanel if you saw this one :)
