Observer
NameKim D
Experience Level2/5
RemarksAt first I thought this was a firework being set off but then I realized it was much brighter and arcing across the sky. The meteor streak ended as if someone snuffed it out or turned off a light. It was a very bright meteor compared to other shooting stars I have seen. Possibly because it was a very dark sky and the outdoor temp was 0 degrees F.
