Reports Report 5621g (Event 5621-2018)

Name Laurie W
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks It moved from west to east directly over my head. I looked straight up to see it. It illuminated the low foggy clouds, like someone turn a light dimming switch from low to high. It ended in the eastern sky as a bright orange glow/ball. I just happen to be taking my puppy out to go potty....WOW!
