Reports Report 4578f (Event 4578-2017)

Name Nathan F
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks So beautiful! And so pronounced, I, like many of the other viewers here, thought it might have been a crashing plane or satellite, but in hind site it was moving across the sky at a tremendous speed. It was so otherworldly and magnificent and bright!!! I doubt I'll ever see another one so amazing.
