Reports Report 4827bt (Event 4827-2017)

Name Jonathan M
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks It was honestly the most terrifying feeling. It looked like a missle heading straight towards earth. But it was quick. Only seconds. Then disappeared. I will never forget the green, white, orange/yellow color. After looking it up, it was probably a meteor or fireball and now I think it was one of the most fascinating experiences I've had.
