Observer
NameEric B
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI would love to find out how close it actually was...because it looked like it almost hit the ground from my perspective. It started in my right peripheral appearing to be traveling from the west to the east. My first thought was, "that may have hit Kansas", but obviously it's hard to tell. Either way it was awesome!
