Observer
NameSarah F
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI am totally an amateur at seeing objects in the sky but driving in my car last night, I\'ve never witnessed any shooting star that bright or long-lasting. Actually I thought I might have been crazy but I googled it and saw that several people saw a \"fireball\" at 6:05 p.m., the time my car radio registered when I saw it.
