Observer
NameSeattle L
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was crazy! At first I thought it was fireworks, but it was silent! It was also dropping straight DOWN! I pointed and said "WHOA!" to my partner, and by the time the word was out of my mouth, it had gotten twice as big, and twice as burning bright, and continued to drop fast below the trees where we could no longer see it. I thought something must have crashed into Rubidoux on the other side of Mt. Rubidoux. I walked to the corner to see if I could see any smoke or anything, but there was nothing. I've never seen anything like it before!!
