Observer
NameJacqui D
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI want to be quite clear that I did not know what I was actually looking at. All I saw was a flash above me but the whole room lit up. Making me think someones car headlights were lighting up the lounge room. Then it disappeared and all was quiet for a few seconds. Then heard three loud far off explosions. First one louder, second and third one sounded further away but boomed three times in a row, if that makes sense.
