NameAreen F
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was zoned out on a midnight phone call when it popped into my periphery. My eyes refocused, and I saw a big white light with a small, quickly disappearing tail streaking through the sky. It only lasted for a second or two. It disappeared for a fraction of a second and then reappeared, only to travel outside my field of vision. I’m not the best at astronomy, but I know it traveled very far very fast. It had me wondering if there was a meteor shower I forgot about and how I’d never seen a meteor that big.
