Observer
NameKristin G
Experience Level1/5
RemarksUNBELIEVABLE! So huge and bright. I almost don't believe it was real. But II sat for 2 hrs waiting to see fireworks or something and, nothing. Just the massive green ball and tail. Sounds weird, but looked like a sperm in sex ed films. Looked opaque thru the end. But maybe the ball ball was just that bright? I honestly thought it was going to hit the channel or Marina at the bottom of hill.
