Experience Level3/5
RemarksMy coworker and I clock horses at the racetrack. We face due east toward the airport. There was an almost full moon in the clear sky that was setting behind us, so our view was dark. If we’re not actively clicking a horse, we’re probably scanning the track. We both happened to be looking in the blank space when this happened. It was sudden and looked almost like something from Star Wars.
