Observer
NameHarry F
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was like “oh my gosh, what was that!? Did you see that?” Thought it was a flare, but couldn’t see a trail and moved too quickly. Also disappeared as quickly as it came into sight. I was open water swimming at the time with my girlfriend (the lake does a full moon night swim on nights with a full moon). I have got a GPS (GPX) file saved of our swim if it will help. Several others in the lake saw the flash.
