Name Kiat H
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks The speed, brightness, stability, large size, and change of colour was astonishing. This was one of the most surprising events of my life. A once in a lifetime and unforgettable experience. My wife also saw it - I was yelling at her to get out of the car quickly to see it and she just caught the end of it when it turned bright iron green.
