Observer
NameDariela F
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThe reason I went back outside was because of the noise. I am still concerned of the low, loud, rumble. I went outside and had no idea I was going to see a sudden bright flash that seemed to be rapidly descending. It's silly, but I'd rather have the noise explained than the fireball.
