Observer
NameLaura L
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThe path was sloping only slightly down, and not very far up from the horizon. If I'd been a few yards farther down the street, I would have missed it because of the big oak trees in most yards. It seemed to change shape somewhat, almost spiky as it grew larger.
