Observer
NameMandy C
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis was huge and bright. It almost appeared as though it were a missile. I would really like to hear if others witnessed this. There is no way it could have gone unnoticed. In fact, on my drive home, I heard gardeners near the sidewalk talking about a fireball which prompted me to explore this site.
