Observer
NameA P
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt seemed like a large bright yellowish white ball of light that streaked overhead and descending in the sky that traveled fast and then disappeared in the distance beyond my view. I said to myself "what the heck was that". I have seen many shooting stars before but this was low in the sky, big and bright something I had never seen before that looked like a ball of fire.
