Reports Report 5308br (Event 5308-2016)

Name Trevor J
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks It was a first time experience for me to see a green fireball so naturally I was excited when I saw it. It happened very fast and was almost gone as quickly as it appeared. The only thought that comes to mind is it must have been comprised of copper in order to have the green hue.
