Observer
NameSherri B
Experience Level3/5
RemarksMy husband and I were sitting on our deck and both happened to look up at the same time to see a blazing light with a long trail disappear into the hills in the distance. We weren't sure what we had seen, so I posted on NextDoor, asking if anyone in the neighborhood had seen it and knew what it was. One guy theorized that it was "Santa moving into his new retirement condo." Luckily, a woman in the next town over advised me of your website! So excited to see if any more info gets posted.
