Experience Level3/5
RemarksInitial coloring sighted was a yellowish tail, only briefly then became obscured by the roof line. Very soon after that the sky lit up in 2-3 pulses. First was more blue, subsequent one or two had a little more green or lighter blue. Very disappointed to have missed seeing the whole event directly!
