Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt lit up the woods around us as bright as a helicopter spotlight. There were 3 of us together at the time and our first comment was it seamed to be remarkabley low in the sky, below well below cruising altitude of an airliner, such than we thought it would impact in 100 miles or so west.
