Reports Report 4801e (Event 4801-2017)

Name Charlie M
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I am a geologist and have witnessed some spectacular meteor showers and "shooting stars" but this viewing seemed surreal. The distinct green hues combined with the long tail made it seem like a single flare or firework, yet I am quite sure it was not man made.
