Reports Report 4947o (Event 4947-2016)

Name Amiyo P
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks It was my friends birthday and we were sitting out on the lanai talking story ABOUT meteors (the upcoming Geminids shower on my birthday) when we both saw this pass through our sky! Thought it was either aliens finally landing or were waiting to hear an explosion or splash into the ocean...figure I'd report it and find out what may have entered our atmosphere.
