Reports Report 3956p (Event 3956-2017)

Name Jim L
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks It appeared from east of Cassiopeia. It was not a huge bright ball, but it was notably bright and colorful. A 2nd steak appeared about 3 seconds after the first and started from a little further North and West. That streak traveled about parallel to the path of the first streak. It traveled a shorter distance than the first streak. It was bright and colorful, but less than half as bright as the first streak. The colors appeared similar to the first streak, though not as pronounced.
