Observer
NameSklanka B
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI've taken a few years of Astronomy, but never really learned too much on what a fireball would look like entering the observable atmosphere. Also it seemed to be traveling in between myself and the direct bottom of the moon, which is what made the trail so predominantly observable.
