Observer
NameSHERYL K
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThe angle of viewing looked like it was heading down towards the horizon. When I saw this fireball, It from my perspective was a big as a house in the sky with a white train following at least twice the length like a jagged dagger. It was something that I will chock up to a life experience viewing.
