Observer
NameBrett B
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was driving at the time. I was only able to see the very first flash of light, and it went overhead and I couldn't see it due to the roof of the car, but I leaned forward and could see the light train / smoke trail. It seemed to be travelling north to south, almost straight overhead but slightly to the east.
