Observer
NameBernadette S
Experience Level1/5
RemarksWas just so straight, fiery and glowing even a bit black at the ball end. And bizarre to see in bright daylight, but this added to clarity of observation. Pls note: was facing east and it came north to south across the sky, about 300 ft off ground, scared birds.
