Observer
NameJustin E
Experience Level4/5
RemarksThis was the longest sighting. I started counting at soon as it started looking odd, so, it may have been longer than 12 seconds, and the direction may have been coming at me, then going away, I didn't move once I first saw it. It was bright like a helicopter, and at the time I thought it was a helicopter had exploding. Scary stuff, but, exciting once I noticed the characteristics that looked like a meteor .
