Observer
NameLou T
Experience Level1/5
RemarksWalking up 5th ave in NYC heading north looking towards Central Park. I yelled to my wife and some Pete who's 11 did you see that!!! It went pretty quick from right to left which is east to west in NYC. The ball was really bright with some red and orange tint with a small white tail. It was a treat when in NYC looking at the holiday festivities. I sometimes sit in the yard trying to find satellites with my son which we see often. This was an extra treat.
