Reports Report 3993ac (Event 3993-2017)

Name Marea F
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks Moved quickly straight down towards the horizon. Visible for a solid 4 seconds. Got pretty low in the sky. Extremely bright despite heavy light pollution in the vicinity. Tail was yellow in color and seemed to “sparkle” which was spectacular!!! Reminded me of a fireworks sparkler but it obviously wasn’t. Never seen anything like it!
