This report has been linked to the following event: Event 4002-2021
Observer
NameDavid B
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI've seen shooting stars before, but none of them were as bright or lasted as long as this one. I could see it travel for about two seconds before erupting in fire, and then I couldn't see it anymore. It appeared as if it had a green trail, and the eruption was a reddish-orange. Easily one of the neatest things I've seen in the sky, and I hope I find out what it was.
