Reports Report 4412f (Event 4412-2018)

Name Edd C
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks This actually looked like it might have been a very large piece of something falling from the sky, but I’ve never seen anything that large falling. It left a thick short tail behind it and it seemed to be falling perpendicular to the ground from the sky.
