Observer
Namejack T
Experience Level5/5
RemarksStunning and breath taking to view. I was driving and only saw this because I happened to be looking in the exact direction at the exact moment of burn up. Since I was driving on a road which was curved but probably most important I was driving up hill my eyes were fixed on an excellent angle to see this object burn up and explode to my right
