OpmerkingenThere was a high overcast, snowing with a full moon. I saw a bright flash in the left corner of my eye that I thought was lighting, turning to look I saw the blazing orange head with yellow fragmentation behind it and a white tail . I was driving west at the time with my car stereo playing loud
