Reports Report 4572l (Event 4572-2017)

Name Carol O
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks I was hoping it would disintegrate before it touched land. I could still see it behind my bare trees but it did disintegrate just before it got too far down, in my opinion. I didn't know if it was a meteor. It was a blue ball with an orange and yellow "tail"
