Observer
NameMichele M
Experience Level2/5
RemarksBiggest thing I've ever seen in the sky other than the moon. Perfectly spherical, intense green head, lighter and brighter toward the center. Tail was a long band of light orange with glittering gold streaks within it. Passed just under Venus traveling about 50-55 degrees to the vertical. Lasted a good 2 secs. I actually had time to jump up from my chair on the deck and stand there open-mouthed while it put on the show.
