Observer
NameCourtney G
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was EXTREMELY bright. I was facing the other direction observing the Pleiades and turned around because the whole sky lit up. I saw about 6 other much dimmer meteors in the course of about an hour or so. I’m not positive as to the coloring, but it was near the constellation Lynx. The time I saw the meteor was +-10 mins of midnight.
