NameLinda M
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThis was the strangest thing because it was so bright..it was above the forest which goes upwards from my house so did not see an actual fireball..just the light...and it took quite a while for the rumbling to start...I went outside ..was worried it was a sheet lightening that might be starting another forest fire very close to my house because it seemed so close and was so bright.
