Reports Report 4235cc (Event 4235-2017)

Name Johnathan N
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks The fireball lit up the clouds in front of it (between me and it) fairly well. On a personal note I have taken a few trips for stargazing and have seen a decent amount of shooting stars but I haven't seen something as amazing as this before. Even though it may not have been relatively as amazing as some other fireballs I'm still glad to have seen it.
