Reports Report 3660e (Event 3660-2017)

Name Cris K
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks In an area where viewing of meteor showers and shooting stars is common, this was absolutely something that was nothing close to anything I’ve, nor the person I was with who was born and raised here has, ever seen before. Definitely bright orange and bright white with a burning quality. Short and no noticeable sound in a quiet area, but still strange enough to be nerve wracking.
