Observer
NameGuido S
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was extremely impressed with the fact that it was noon, clear skies, very sunny, and I still was able to see it very clearly. It was big. At first it looked like a rocket or missile headed to the ground. I even thought it could be a plane falling, but it was too fast for that and I didn't hear any sounds afterwards.
