Observer
NameJen R
Experience Level2/5
RemarksWas sitting at fire pit with parents in law and the bright blue flash caught all of our attention we happened to be looking in direction where it happened or we would've missed it. It looked big across the moon and was brighter than the moon for a moment before it disappeared. A few minutes later, less than five, we heard a loud boom in the distance and dogs off in the distance started barking. The frogs all got quiet when it happened too, everything was quiet when it initially flashed across the sky.
