Observer
NameNate W
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI've seen a lot of meteors just by being outside at night. This was definitely bigger and brighter and more fiery looking. I've also observed Jupiter, Mars, and Venus in the night sky and this was a heck of a lot brighter, though not as bright as the moon. Definitely a fireball.
