NameAnnie S
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis was the most remarkable and extraordinary sight I have ever witnessed in the sky. When I saw it happening I scream “did you see that shooting star.” Then I realized it was the middle of the afternoon. I thought then maybe it was an explosion, but it was not a plane or an animal. It definitely was fireball looking. Wow!!!
