We have those here, even in the Midwest. We watched one perfectly framed over Lake Erie. We had chairs and welders glass and it was very cool.
It was the the last stellar phenomena we saw since everything since then brought rain. Blood moon= rain, blue moon=rain, Perseid meteor shower=rain. I'm getting used to it.
Speaking as a southren Californian, I treasure the rain. Still. I missed the rain, a lot for over 30 years.
