Reports Report 2642a (Event 2642-2017)

Name Kendall H
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks The full moon was just coming out of some leftover hazy rain clouds. Couldn't see the stars. Directly in front of me, it fell straight down with very little diagonal pitch towards the ground, then gone. I didn't see it hit earth. Large orange head with tail and definitely closer to earth than expected. South to SE of Boulder, CO maybe it hit out on the plains.
