Observer
NameN L
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI have observed a lot of very bright falling stars while in the bush in Zimbabwe with no light pollution for miles. Beautiful meteors visible every 5 minutes. The potential "fireball" that I'm reporting here tonight was significantly larger than anything that I've ever seen in my 41 years on earth. I hope that others report it and i to feedback about it. Thanks
