Reports Report 3923o (Event 3923-2017)

Name Catherine and Brett G
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I still see it, especially when I close my eyes -- the first sight I saw of it -- before it passed overhead and beyond across the mountain tree tops -- Its like there is an after image. I hope it does not start a forest fire. We had enough of that. But it was still AWESOME!
