Name Roy B
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks Actually what I witnessed was a general brightening of the sky from my left to my right. Very bright, approaching daylight for several seconds with a lenthy delay to the sonic boom. I was shoveling snow with the porch light on and the brightness was startling and erry. Did not actual see meterior or trail but the questions had to be answered to move on in the servy. Best Regards, Roy Baker
