Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was an amazing experience. I wish I can know what I saw. It was like a fireball in the sky. I got a little scared at first but then it disappeared quick. I thought it was a shooting start at first but It was kind of big for that. Let me know if you know what I saw. Thank you.
