Reports Report 5308aw (Event 5308-2016)

Name Brenda J
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks This was the second I have seen. The first was maybe 4 years ago, east of Union City, but it looked more like a ball of fire, and almost like it landed not too far from where I was. This one was different, very very bright - the colors I remember were white - and very large as well... with blue standing out to me and some orange/yellow. It looked quite close to me!!!
