Observer
NameCori B
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was so bright, I thought there was bizzare lightning strike. It lit up everything around me. It also seemed close enough to be something burning in earth's atmosphere. My friend says that he thought it was a plane crash at first, it started out like a huge bright explosion, (with no sound).
