Observation details

**MEGA! 2nd Brooklyn record. Found ~20 minutes prior by Shane Blodgett (initially seen from BJ's flying towards the bay, and then he tracked it down to Calvert Vaux immediately), who got the word out quickly enough for us and others to converge upon and see it before it disappeared. Extremely long tail streamers, and fairly good color indicated an adult, and the sharply pointed and deeply emarginated P10 indicated an adult male. Many good photos.
