Observer
NameTaylor W
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI've seen fireballs before, but not like this one! I'm so frustrated (and lack several adequate details) because my view was obscured by the roof of the cabin beside which I stood. It's trajectory was such that I plan to go explore the field across the street at first light - if not sooner!
