Observer
NameCharmagne S
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI have seen meteors from time to time before but this was by far the largest and brightest one I have every seen. It was green (to me) though my husband thought it looked more blueish. The flashes were yellow and quite bright. I assume the first flash was the meteor splitting up and the smaller flashes were the fragments further splitting or burning out but this is just an assumption as I have no training in astronomy. The meteor was nearly due east from my location. Really cool.
