Observer
NameFerguson B
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was really big ($.50 cent size at arms length), and amazingly bright. There was a low cloud cover and no visible stars. It glowed through the clouds, mostly yellowy orange, but with some other color around the edges. Spectacular site. My wife was driving in her car just behind mine, and she saw the same thing.
