Observer
NameChristy F
Experience Level2/5
Remarks I was on my way to work, talking to my fiancé on the phone, when all the sudden I saw what I thought was a huge meteor or fireball that was glowing a bright blue with a bluish white trail behind it. I said jokingly to John, “I may be late to work, because I think there will be a meteorite crashing into I-95, blocking my way”. It seemed as if it were that close because of the size. I’ve seen many shooting stars, but this was amazing!
