Reports Report 638gf (Event 638-2015)

Name Derek B
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks It seemed to be on fire. I seem to remember that it looked like it was burning leaving a tail of fire. It was so low on the horizon that I was surprised that was no sound or impact or even a big hole in the mountain to the west.
