Observer
NameJenni G
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI have seen shooting stars before but have never seen anything like this. Two girls walking several streets behind me but in a different direction (so we knew the other was there) started shouting when they saw it, because it was so unusual, bright and dramatic. It was hard to gauge the exact trajectory and position as it was late at night in a built up area
