Reports Report 5450ln (Event 5450-2017)

Name Rod H
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks It made me think of the kind of firework that leaves long trails (like a weeping willow tree) -- to me the trail did *not* look like a straight line or smooth arc, but rather showed the same sort of waviness or oscillation one of these firework 'tentacles' would exhibit. (Effect may have entirely been visual, but I don't have any experience to know -- I just know it didn't look like any shooting star I'd ever seen before).
