Observer
NameJennifer T
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was driving. My son followed behind. He called me seconds after confirming that he also saw the green flash. It was round in shape and looked to be quite close, maybe a football field length away. It was very bold green in color and quickly descended to the ground. It came down to my right as I traveled East on Hwy 150. I witnessed something similar to this many years ago. Iy was the first green flash and was so vivid and bright. It was fascinating.
