Name Robert P
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I have lived under the Big Wyoming sky for 40 plus years, I have seem lots of "shooting stars" but NOTHING AS CLOSE TO EARTH, AS BIG, AND TRAVELING ACROSS THE SKY LIKE THIS EVER. It came out of the south east and traveled parallel to the earth in a north western direction until in disappeared over the Teton mountains. It never seem to change in its strength as it traveled a cross the sky. MOST AMAZING THING I HAVE EVER SEEN IN THE NIGHT SKY.
