Observer
NameAmy S
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was a partly cloudy night with what I would describe as low hanging clouds. I was amazed I even saw this due to the cloud cover. It was not as large as fireballs I have previously seen, but I know size is relative. The road I was driving on is a lot curvier than it appears on Google Maps, but I think the general directional info I provided is correct.
