Reports Report 1012o (Event 1012-2017)

Name Jesse E
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks It appeared as though it was almost coming straight down at a slight angle from the sky. My wife and I both happen to see it as we were in the car facing in the exact direction when it happened so we saw it from start to finish. An absolutely amazing experience as quick as it was.
