Observer
NameMarc L
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt had a trail as it went. It moved relatively slowly compared to a shooting star and was wide.I am not 100% certain whether I saw it when it terminated as the view was blocked by some trees and I saw it reappear and then disappear. I was walking at the time to get an unobstructed view.
