Observer
NameJoshua S
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI’ve witnessed “shooting stars” before, but this was more brilliant in its coloring and brightness. Previously I’ve seen more amber colored shooting stars, but this was a bright white with a hint of blue. Also, I live in an area with military activity, however this moved with the speed and trajectory that is unlike a flare or any aircraft.
