Reports Report 3501ag (Event 3501-2017)

Name Judith K
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks Very bright colors around bright sphere as if 'flames' and a 'tale' left in its wake. Very fast, caught sight of it with the corner of my eye as I turned round about to get into my car, at first I though there must be fireworks but when I saw the brightness, size etc realized it was a fireball.
