Name Bobby S
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I feel it is important to let you people know how incredible of An experience this was. It was me my other friend who is very into space and my girlfriend we were coming back from a bar it was about 2 30 am when we all collectively yelled what the fuck is that I slammed in the breaks we got out and all looked at each other saying did you just see that. It was a legit green fireball I felt that I could actually see the mass under the glow like the blackness of the object and it was an incredibly clear night I am so grateful for what I saw and I would love to know more about it
