Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt wa highly visible over Route 66 between Manassas City and Dulles Airport area. I wouldn\'t be suprised that several of aircraft in the area, taking off or landing at Dulles, didn\'t see it or report it. Even the tower at Dulles may have seen it. Great spectical. I love Mother Nature whne she puts on a show.
