This report has been linked to the following event: Event 1778-2020
Observer
NameJoey C
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThe longest lasting one I've ever seen. It was odd at first as if it was falling fast straight down from the sky and surprised to see it last as long as it did. Whats best about this one I actually had a skyscraper (Williams Tower) within in view and right next to this meteor, which made it really easy to determine it's trajectory. Brightness didn't change at all until it faded out.
