Observer
NameDesiree O
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI happened to be on my phone outside and notice a bright glow from the corner of my eye. I noticed a large ball of light in the sky on the left start to come closer into our atmosphere. When I turned to look it was at its brightest and that is when I heard a sound it made before it shot across the sky to my right, leaving a glowing trail of light. Probably one of the most amazing things I've ever seen in my life.
