Observer
NameJessica A
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was able to see the bright light in the corner of my eye and turn to watch it descent till faded in the sky. It was quite large and bright, I thought there is no way that is a shooting star. I had long enough to think to myself as it descended, "What is that?" "A firework?" & "I should take my camera out" Im still in awe.
