Reports Report 3547d (Event 3547-2017)

Name Catherine K
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks This was not a normal tiny falling star that is little and white. It was a very very bright ball of fire, it reminded me of space shuttle flames when it takes off only much smaller than that. But way bigger than a falling star. I have never seen anything like it before and had to look up images to decide what it was I actually saw.
