NameKathi P
Experience Level2/5
RemarksMy friend was with me, and it lasted long enough for me to direct her to look at the "thing" and for us to discuss whether it was a crashing aircraft, a meteor, or just what. We weren't sure what we were seeing, but we both agreed that we'd never seen anything like it before!
