Reports Report 5361cz (Event 5361-2017)

Name Karen O
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks It was very bright and quite spectacular, with noticeable flames. It disappeared below the roofline of the store towards which I was walking. I almost thought it might be a plane about to crash, and waited to hear if there would be an explosion, but did not.
