Observer
NameHaley C
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was honestly one of the coolest things I've ever seen. It looked like someone "turned the lights on" the whole sky lit up then I saw this massive fire ball to my right. Of course I was driving and I didn't get the greatest look at it. But I kept looking in that direction for any signs of a fire of some sort. I almost thought maybe a plane was going down at first. Seriously so cool though.
