Observer
NameLauren W
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThis was at Chemeketan Campground. We are highly confident this was not fireworks. It was observed by 4 members at our campsite. There wasn’t much of a ‘path’ to this object. It was more of a bright, intense fireball with a significant flash that lit the sky. There were stars present in the sky at night and we are also confident this was not a thunder and lightning event.
