Observer
NameElias G
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was much, much bigger than a falling star. Falling stars usually fizzle out very quickly and get smaller. This one started like a falling star, but got larger and larger, then it changed to a glowing orange color before I lost it behind some clouds. The largest sight I have ever seen. Like nothing ever before.
