Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was simply an amazing experience and I feel lucky to have seen it! My friend and I were just sitting on a quiet bench looking at the water and there was another couple next to us and when it happened we all just turned to each other in amazement saying, "DID YOU SEE THAT? HOLY COW!! THAT WAS AMAZING!" We sat there for about another 30 minutes to see if anything else would happen but it didn't.
