Namepaul S
Experience Level3/5
RemarksWhen I first saw it it was quite small and the best I can describe it it was like a black curtain with a small slit and it had a brilliant orange light on the other side, and from that point on it started to elongate until the trail behind it, both with them spread across much of the sky, was very brilliant and had the of characteristics of a fourth of July sparkler in the tail of it

RemarksThere seem to be to buyer balls one in front of the other, the one leading a very long sparkly trail and as it started to fade in the trail was another fireball that was much brighter and had a much much longer tail, the combined trail covered a very large portion of the sky from one end to the other although very long not too big in diameter from my point of view about an inch
