Observer
NameJody V
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI’m not sure that the exact location is correct as I was driving on I-85, but I know it was in the general area, and I was going N/NE. It was absolutely remarkable to see, I noticed it because it was going much too fast to be an airplane and it was an incredible, brilliant green.
