This report has been linked to the following event: Event 1414-2019
Observer
NameJoni S
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI love to look for meteors and oftentimes plan to be in darker areas when I know that a shower is coming. Unfortunately, I live in the city and during all of 2018 the weather did not cooperate when I could travel to areas with less ground light. This was, by far, the brightest meteor that I have ever seen and I seem to be the only 1 who saw it.
