Observer
NameRobert M
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI’ve never seen anything like it. The flash and colors and the way it faded away was unreal. It was a yellow ball with a trail starting green and turning blue then it evenly faded away. I’m pretty sure it flashed when the color turned to blue. I looked up because of the flash and saw it.
