Observer
NameVasu N
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis was the best meteor I have witnessed to date, it was also brightest and longest I've seen. it appeared for bright & clear for about 3 secs with long streak of light (fume like) then for a fraction of a second disappeared and then appeared in same path for another 1-2 sec (not so much bright more yellowish color). It traveled from my left to right (moving away from me)while I was walking my dog in front of home. I was looking at sky as it was clear with many stars (I had seen 3-4 meteors few days back August 12) and out of nowhere this happened and it was bit scary as I thought something would impact the earth as it was extremely close from whatever I had seen before.
