Observer
NameJosh F
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was honestly the most surreal moment of my life thus far. The bright flash surrounding me and then watching the blue ball shoot through the sky almost as if it was a firework descending down. I think it may have been the most magical moment of my life. I have been stargazing a bunch with my grandpa and seen some shooting stars, and really wish he could have seen it with me tonight. Let me know if you have any questions!
