Observer
NameLJ M
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI happened to look up while watching TV and caught it at the perfect time. I actually thought it was a plane crashing at first but it didn't seem to be in the regular plane pathway for BWI flights. I realized it was something I'd never seen before except in pictures. It was very exciting and I just wish it had lasted longer. Hopefully someone caught a picture of it!
