This report has been linked to the following event: Event 305-2020
Observer
NameKristin M
Experience Level1/5
RemarksWe live at Cityscapes at the Views in Broomfield, Colorado. These homes have wide open rooftop terraces on the fourth floor, so great viewing opportunities. While I have seen sightings in the past from great distances, I have never seen anything like this so incredibly close to my house and other houses. It seemed less than 400 feet away (less than a football field) like I could reach up and make contact as it burned away (but it happened so fast so it was a crazy thing to see).
