Observer
NameSimon G
Experience Level1/5
RemarksWas walking the dogs miles into the deep woods where it was very dark then all of a sudden a dark green light started shining everywhere until it was super bright. At that point I was puzzled as to what was going on until I looked up and saw a huge glowing ball of fire fly by almost directly over my head and then it exploded with a bright flash. Minutes later I hear the sounds from explosion. Probably the coolest thing I’ve ever witnessed in my entire life! I was super lucky to have been outside it that cold weather to see it.
