Observer
NameSUSAN W
Experience Level3/5
RemarksMy husband is an amateur astronomer who is an experienced observer. He also caught a glimpse of it and we both believed it went down below the horizon; however, we were on a hill that had a partially obscured view. Planes were in the area which had blinking lights, but this bright ball had no blinking lights.
