Reports Report 1337fk (Event 1337-2017)

Name Melissa K
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I saw this with 5 friends (all of whom are scientists) in Myrtle Beach and we spent hours trying to convince ourselves that it wasn't a plane or a rocket. It was unbelievably bright and low in the horizon, especially considering how cloudy it was.
