Reports Report 4111au (Event 4111-2017)

Name Ed M
Experience Level 5/5
Remarks I was driving north on Rt 287 when I saw it. There was a full moon, yet I could still see this flash clearly. I don't know if I marked my exact location on the map accurately. I've never seen anything like this before. I briefly thought that it might have been an airplane crashing.
