Observer
NameHelen R
Experience Level1/5
RemarksWatching tv & caught flash through south facing window. Very little urban glow tonight so sky quite dark. Nearly full moon in east but no light from it. Thought it was an aircraft on fire, dropping from the sky but it was too fast. Totally amazing sight. I’ve seen 2 much smaller ones (bolides?) over the years but this was definitely worth finding a way of reporting it.
