This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2313-2012
Observer
NameEdward J
Experience Level2/5
RemarksMost amazing meteorological event I have witnessed in my 50 years in Florida. Was driving in a car but it was a beautifully clear night and it seemed to last forever. Unfortunately a tree line obscured my view in its last moments so I couldn't tell if it stayed intact until impact. The actual time of the event could have been 30 minutes either way.
