Reports Report 2273a (Event 2273-2017)

Name Emme D
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks It kind of looked like a giant firework being blasted across the night sky. It was an extremely bright yellow colour at the core and it glowed green ( the light flickered a little), I believe it was a bolide. It almosted appeared to not move in a smooth fashion (almost like it was weaving through the whisps of low clouds). It also appeared to be pretty close to my friend and I but that was probably because of its size.
