Reports Report 27a (Event 27-2018)

Observer
Name Camille G
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks I didn't see the ball itself, possibly because of cloud cover or buildings (I don't remember), but I saw glowing light move across the sky above the northeastern edge of Indianapolis (south of my own latitude) and a brilliant blue-green flash that lasted for several seconds before dissipating.
