Observer
NameJordan A
Experience Level1/5
RemarksSky was ultra clear and the moon was bright as can be beautiful night I was looking in the sky when I focused on a bright (what looked like a star) or close airplane with lights on coming straight at me (that what I initially thought) but at split second it moved gracefully across sky turning colors for a good 3 seconds. My friend saw it with me. Freaking amazing! Ultimately blowing up at treeline
