Observer
NameDaniel M
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt looked closer than it probably was, it could have lasted more than 5 seconds but I didn't notice it till the flash. Looked like it was coming from my location towards where I marked where I was looking. Also I'm realizing my angle was more down to the right than as straight down as I made it but still pretty vertical, sorry! I would love to learn more, that was wild.
