Observer
NameKaren G
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI am not sure of the yellow color. I definitely saw extreme white. The object did not look any other tinge of color, but possible yellow. It was super bright and pretty big too. Well, I guess big is relative. :) I saw it so briefly. I was talking to my friend while we were walking. It was really exciting! Before I could say anything, it was gone. While it was coming down (I put an angle on your form, but am unsure.... It pretty much looked vertical), I did see a bright trail of light. However, I believe, it vanished when the fireball vanished. It just all happened so quickly... I hope there were other sightings.
