Observer
NameLinda D
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis was one of the coolest things I have ever seen--it was definitely no ordinary shooting star! I saw it while taking my morning run; the bright flash caught the corner of my eye and I looked up and turned my head to watched it streak across the sky. I was afraid it was going to hit somewhere because it was so bright, but it eventually flamed out. Truly awesome!!
