Observer
NameChristopher C
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThis was either the brightest plane ever, or a comet, not sure how something could be so bright. Not blinking. Huge trails behind it. If the trails were 2 fists held at arms length the bright object must have been a quarter of my pinky nail in size at arms length. It was very slow but seemed very far away, yet I could see how much of the sky it lit up. I asked a man walking to the gym if he sees that and he paused for a min with me and said “yea that’s no plane wth is that”
