Observer
NameRenee P
Experience Level1/5
RemarksMy kids and I were driving home when out of the corner of my eye, I saw a green flash in the sky. I looked over at it and saw it better. My daughter asked "what was that?" I told her I didn't know but probably some kids having fun and setting off a firework they found from last summer. It was a very pretty green and looked almost like a firework, almost like a flash from a Roman candle firework, but only gave one flash instead of one right after another and only coming down instead of seeing some going up first.
