Observer
NameRegina D
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was outside trying to warm my fruit trees when it caught my eye. It was spectacular and bright. It moved relatively slowly.and reminded me of a huge smoking disc floating through the air. As it moved from my right to left and slightly downward it seemed to trail off and disappear.I was so thankful to have been outside and turned in the right direction to see it
