Observer
NameArla S
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI thought it was a falling star, but I've never seen one that close. It was bright white ball but burned red and yellow at the end, then a white tail as it fell. It looked like a star but it was so close and went down behind some trees. I thought I could run around the corner and find it.
