Reports Report 834n (Event 834-2017)

Name Barrie S
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I missed the initial appearance of the fireball, the brightness from the first flashes, ~1-2 seconds, must have been very bright as it was the clouds being lit up that drew my eye. It lasted another 3-4 seconds before completely burning up.
