Reports Report 1616g (Event 1616-2017)

Name Zael D
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks It almost looked as if it was brightest twice during it's extremely brief sighting. It flashed bright as it appeared, slightly dimmed as it was giving off the shimmering/spark effect then flashed very bright again before disappearing. No sounds, no booms. I listened for several moments just in case.
