Reports Report 3624f (Event 3624-2017)

Name Darren L
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks Truly remarkable at how long it lasted and the length of its course and brightness of its flashes. Bright enough to catch my eye from indoors through corner porch windows. Thrilling. Never seen anything like it. Somewhat similar to the russian video a few years ago but I opened the window to listen for a sound but didn't hear one (which I was a little glad of when I thought of the windows smashed in russia.
