Name Scott H
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks This was a great fireball. Sitting on porch talking with girlfriend and I happened to be facing the right direction to see it, tried to get her to turn to see it but startled her when doing so. This was not the largest or brightest I've ever witnessed, though the 2nd most, both in Murrells Inlet.
