Observer
NameWilliam R
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThis thing looked really huge - big fireball with a big, long trail of what looked like fireworks. Answered questions as best as I could recall. I actually texted someone as soon as I saw it, so I know the time is good. It may have been a little lower that I answered. Just lasted 2-3 seconds and disappeared. I've seen lots of falling stars and a couple of meteor showers, but never anything like this. Very bright. I'm not even 100% sure about the color - I put white. Just very, very bright; may have had some light blue - not sure. Anyone looking up could not have missed this.
