Observer
NamePenny B
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThis happened right above my back yard as I was standing on my back patio letting the dog out. For a few seconds, I wondered if I should hurry up and get in the house because it seemed as if something large was heading to earth....and then it fizzled out. It started as what appeared to be a bright bolt of lightning and then turned orange/red. It was an amazing experience!
