This report has been linked to the following event: Event 4841-2017
Observer
NameMatt E
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt came in at a relatively shallow angle, from west to east, compared to others I've seen. Not very vibrant in color, like a washed out green or pale yellow. Very few, if any, secondaries. Short duration, possibly not even a second long. Of the four or five fireball meteors I've seen in my life, this one was probably the least spectacular; though I count myself lucky to have seen it at all.
