Observer
NameMarie R
Experience Level4/5
RemarksIt was a cloudy night that was rainy and had started to clear up. The flash was so bright that I thought it might be lightning, but it was the wrong shape and color and didn't light up the sky or our surroundings. Sadly it might have landed I the water as much as land here in southeast Alaska.
