Reports Report 4878a (Event 4878-2017)

Name Jake T
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I was not the only one who saw this event my friend was next to me afterwards we both looked at each other and said DID YOU SEE THAT! I have never seen anything like that before either has my friend who grew up in the upper peninsula where there is very little light pollution. Me personally have seen some other non reported events in the last few years along with traveling down to the Total Eclipse in Land between Lakes Kentucky where I experienced the Totality in the middle of a field on land between the lakes back country camping. I would rate this event in 2nd place and number 1 the total eclipse.
