Observer
NameDavid H
Experience Level2/5
Remarks Assumed it was an iron meteor, or space junk, and was hoping to corroborate my sighting. I usually see meteors streaking for no more than a few seconds. This one appeared twice as long as I would normally see, and a bit slower. Assumed it came in at a low angle and was larger than particle size.
