Observer
NameAaron L
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThis is easily the biggest and brightest "falling star" I've ever seen. I always look for them when I am outside at night, and see them fairly often. Usually I see fast white/yellow streaks, this one had a very wide tail, was slow, and the color started yellow, to blue/green, back to yellow.
