Reports Report 2648a (Event 2648-2017)

Name Paul B
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks It was Dusk, still fairly light out, And slightly cloudy. I saw a QuickFlash in a gap in the clouds. My first thought was that it was A reflection of the sun off a Mylar balloon, but I kept looking for it after the flash and it has completely disappeared. Then it occurred to me that we are close to the Persieds shower, and that it might've been a fireball.
