Reports Report 4818a (Event 4818-2017)

Name Janice C
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks This thing was HUGE, as compared to a star falling. It actually appeared to be very close to me as it came down, perhaps 6 blocks away, which I know is not possible. It was perfectly round like the moon and such a *bright* white.
