Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was driving 35 mph at the time and first I saw a white light and it was behind trees,so I figured it was a signal flair. Once I passed the trees, I could see a really big,wide blue and white streek of light really close to the road. My windows were rolled and as the meteor passed, and I could smell smoke inside of my truck.
