Observer
NameNicholas G
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was relatively slow, at first I thought possibly an airplane because of the speed, but then it turned green and flared up and it was clearly a meteor of sorts. Much larger than any other meteor I had seen, maybe the diameter of 10 standard meteors across.
