Reports Report 5520g (Event 5520-2017)

Name Jessica B
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks it was bigger than a shooting star & brighter than any of the other stars in the sky...almost as bright as the very present, almost full moon. It almost looked like a huge plane or something in the far distant literally crashing to the ground in an arc like fashion!! Either the coolest or most tragic thing i’ve ever seen!!! i can’t be the only one who saw this!!
