NameLincoln J
Experience Level3/5
RemarksBeen looking at the sky for 28 years, this was by far the most impressive thing I have seen that I felt was important and cool enough to go online and report it. Truly curious to know more about it if anyone obtains any information. Quite cool, and happy it was viewable by a chanced glance at the sky from my yard at midnight.
