Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksIt was pretty cloudy but it was so bright that it was clearly visible- I saw a wide glowing circular shape falling and then a saw a flash. I could be nuts but it almost looked like the center was dark and the flash was glowing around it. It was incredible! Also, I have no idea how to gauge the trail length in degrees but if I held a 12” ruler out at arms length that would probably be a good estimate.
