Observer
NameGreg H
Experience Level2/5
RemarksOne of the more amazing things I've ever seen. My coworker and I were physically shaken and mentally baffled by what we had witnessed. We immediately ruled out any sort of fireworks or flareguns because after the initial bright green flash,the trajectory that this object headed north on was far too flat. The trajectory was slightly downward, like a cannonball fired from a great distance. It also was very close, maybe a mile or so high up in the sky and approximately a mile away or a bit more coming towards it. How close it was really gave me goosebumps, it was very up close and personal.
