Observer
NameStephanie C
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI sit up on a hill according to the internet about 160 ft elevation. But I saw it through the tops of the trees and lost it between the house in front of me so don’t know how accurate my horizon/angle info is. Also I have to admit I thought it was a drone, but I think it moved too quickly and the light coming off was so big and bright that I don’t think it was.
