Observer
NameAnna H
Experience Level3/5
RemarksAt first I came home and told my boyfriend about the HUGE shooting star I saw go across the sky right in front of me while I was driving down the highway. But then when I started to look up online to see if perhaps anybody else saw it or had footage of it i began to think maybe i had actually seen a fireball. It wasnt like the enormous green fireball i saw last year but it was the biggest shooting star I'd ever seen besides the green fireball i saw last year!! It went about half of its path in the sky and then burst a bit, not huge burst, and then the second half of its trip across the skye was even brighter than the first but continued to travel in a singular streak like it had before the burst.

RemarksI saw a small burst as it hit the atmosphere. It wasnt like the fireball I saw a year and a half ago, which was bigger and lit the entire landscape like daylight, but if it wasnt a fireball then it was absolutely the BIGGEST shooting star I've ever seen!!!
