Reports Report 5531h (Event 5531-2017)

Name Damien B
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks Never seen something so bright and vivid running parallel and low to the earth. It came over my left shoulder and went straight in front of me for a long while before it became hidden by the trees. Was an amazing sight and much bigger than any type of shooting star I've seen before.
