NameDom S
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was breathtaking. Huge and powerful. I thought a bomb was falling. It was distant but obviously very large in size and had a “plasma” blue color with a bright trail. It appeared to be falling with a lot of force. I was expecting to hear a boom but I heard nothing.
