NameMark L
Experience Level2/5
RemarksFor a few moments after seeing this entirely unexpected huge fireball and then flash, I briefly thought I should prepare for a shockwave ... I viewed a program once about a large one in Siberia that tore the place up and my mind flashed to that... Glad I saw it now.
