Reports Report 1011a (Event 1011-2017)

Name Brent K
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks It truly was the brightest one of these I've ever seen. If I had to make an amateur comparison, it looked like the trail Tinkerbell leaves before Disney movies begin. It was truly remarkable, enough for me to look it up and fill this out. Which I would most normally never do.
