Reports Report 1414d (Event 1414-2017)

Name Amy V
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks This was absolutely incredible. I wasn't sure what it was because I have seen many shooting stars, but nothing like this! Wish I had gotten a better pic. I was too late and got it as it was burning out. I think I captured a little of the smoke trail in the photo as well.
