Observer
Name\S/tephanie P
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was awesome! I saw one earlier this year and I can't believe that I saw another one when I thought this was a once-in-a-lifetime event. It wasn't as bright or majestic and I wasn't as close as the first one I saw earlier this year, but man it was Cool! Enough for me to gasp in awe and delight and be all excited for the rest of the drive that night! Btw, I am a midnight truck driver who loves the night sky.
