Observer
NameCliff R
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was very fast, level trajectory, both quiet and trail less, with the the ejections from the following segments from right to left. Right side was the leading portion. 1/5 forwards, and the 3/5, and 4/5 segments most active, while the brightest was the 2/5, and darkest the 5/5 tail.Never seen anything so big and fast so close to my point of observation. Memorable, and truly awe-inspiring.
