Reports Report 4050g (Event 4050-2017)

Name Edward B
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks It was lasted just a second, as long as you can say the words "flash, flash" but so very bright and felt very, very close to the ground with a very flat trajectory. I understand it's very difficult to accurately assess how near it was to me, but it did feel like it was at the end of its journey in terms of remaining size and proximity to the ground. It came across the valley and was very early in the morning on a flat trajectory. Bright magnesium white. Really great sight.
