Observer
NameKatie F
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was the wildest shooting star I've ever seen. I couldn't even figure out what it was when I first saw it. I thought it was some kind of firework at first. I described it to my husband and then we searched the Internet for a while until we found a news article with a link to this website. The descriptions in the article were exactly like the ones I had given my husband. Very wild thing to see in person.
