Observer
NameDonald B
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was lying in bed fully awake when I thought a flash light was turned on through my bedroom patio window. I was facing north and the light was due west. When I turned my head, the bright line of light was wide and going from east to west and bright orange. I had a very small angle of view as I am near Crosby peak to my west. From what I saw, it was the brightest in my life time.
