Observer
NameDave M
Experience Level5/5
RemarksI witnessed a bright flash on Sunday morning while I was at the Naylor Observatory. Unfortunately, I was inside the French Dome at the time and didn't see created the light. I happened to be looking through the shutter opening around 12:26 a.m. EDT when the entire eastern sky was brightly illuminated for a split second. The cause, of course, was a bright bolide. I really wish I had been outside at the time.
