Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was remarkable, roundish, like a ball, first thought it was a very bright firefly, or carabunca, it was large, bright, streaking at a very low angle towards the SW towards San Juan and the Pacific Coast. It appeared to fade for a split second then brightened again. It appeared very close. It was one of the most amazing Astronomical events we have ever witnessed.
