Reports Report 5361ab (Event 5361-2017)

Name Lea K
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks it was very large and noticeable - unlike a fast shooting star, it was slow in it's arc and I feared it would actually hit the Earth, until it burned up, with a moment of flaring bits in the sky in the color red before it disappeared.
