This report has been linked to the following event: Event 3068-2017
Observer
NameTrish M
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI have never seen anything so big and bright flying across the sky! The boom and quaking after the bright flash had me excited and concerned all at the same time! It was unbelievable!! I'm an avid watcher of meteor showers but they all seem to pale in comparison to what I saw tonite!! The time I saw the fireball is an approximate time, it may have been 10:08pm. I guess I should have looked at the exact time, but I was shocked and amazed at the entire spectacle! Next time (if I'm that lucky) I will take note on the exact time and will hopefully get a picture or video!!
