Observer

Experience Level4/5
RemarksSitting in my room looking out the window, due south. I observe a rather large ball of green flashing low on horizon moving rather slowly , due west very low angle to earth dropping as it moves. Can see bits of orange( very little ) with sparks of white light omitting from the ball, Irregular shape. Very large in comparison to the trees it disappeared behind. Fantastic , the best I have seen in over 37 years of star gazing . Amazingly close!!!
