Observer
NameGavinn K
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI did not actually see the fireball dissipate. I was driving on the highway and lost sight of it as it dipped behind a mountain. This being said, it was most definitely too low to be sliming the atmosphere. For perspective had it been a plane it would have been noticeably too low.
