Observer
NameDerek C
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis was huge! I made a video right after i saw it (while driving)... You could hear how my adrenaline was pumping just decided no need for the video since well it was pretty much just me screaming holy shit that was insane!!. This wasnt very far from 15 look like maby a mile or 2 or more not not like crazy long distance.... Apparently a friend of mine saw it as well from Scott Air Force base. If you do have any questions just ask... I didnt hear any booms or anything it just went poof. The news or police or nothing went public about it... I even have a post of my facebook page about me seeing it.
