Reports Report 2611al (Event 2611-2018)

Name Tyler L
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks Like I mentioned previously, the flash of light prior to seeing the ball of light was much brighter than anything I’ve seen (shooting star). Even though I wasn’t looking up when it occurred it was bright enough to get my attention. The ball of light I saw once I looked up seemed very close and was gone quickly.
