Observer
NameSusan C
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI love watching meteor showers. Live up at about 2,000 ft level above the lights so good viewing for being in Orange County. Have view toward ocean and was watching distant fireworks shows when the meteor went directly in front of me at 45 degrees from start to finish, roughly west to east. It was very bright with a short tail. Not a firework. Not even close.
