This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2240-2016
Observer
NameJohn O
Experience Level3/5
RemarksWell, unfortunately I didn't see the beginning of the event. the first thing i noticed was the flash that turned the sky blue and lit up the surrounding area. seeing a lot of meteors in my life, I instantly knew what had caused the flash and i jerked my head straight up to try to see the meteor. all i caught was the fragments of the already exploded meteor. So all the directions info i filled out in the report are based off of the direction i saw the fragments moving; which was moving almost do north from almost directly overhead. the thing must have exploded right on top of where i was. Like i said, I've seen a lot of falling stars in my life, but never one that big or one that made any sounds. It was a real treat! And pure dumb luck that i was outside at the time. And it looked to be a little bit of a close call too, from where i was standing lol.
