NameScott S
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was10^3 mag bigger than a shooting star and never diminshed in brghtness or color. falling a t avery shallow angle. Could have been in Europe as it was huge. If I held my fist at arms length it would be just larger than the object size but the object could have been 100s or even 1000 miles away as its size and unchanging radius confuse my distance
