Experience Level2/5
RemarksTime was approximate, not later than 7, but could have been as early as 6:40. Brightness difficult to rate - it was extremely bright, but very small compared to a "full moon" or the sun. Comparable to brightness in photo by McCormack on the AMS website (but yellow orange and seemed closer than in his photo).
