Reports Report 1687g (Event 1687-2017)

Observer
Name Will E
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks It definitely was so bright that it caught my eye. It's dark outside so I'm not sure if it was as bright as a full moon or not just because of how quick it went and how surprised I was to see a flash of light. I would say it was definitely between a quarter moon and a full moon. It was almost the size of a quarter at an arms length in the sky.
