Observer
NameTerry O
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was sitting on the couch in a well lite room looking at my wife sitting by the window facing north, total blackness outside when it came into view at the top of the window then quickly dissapeared maybe behind the tree line, unsure. Very bright at at the tip with flickering lites disappearing behind as it went down. I live on a lake and there are many fireworks around here, but this was just 1 by itself with no boom afterwards. Maybe nothing?
