Observer
NameRobert T
Experience Level4/5
RemarksVery slow traveling fireball, much slower than other meteors I have seen. Seemed to come straight down. It was very exciting to watch! I\'m pretty sure something got through the atmosphere, as it was traveling pretty slow and appeared just to lose brightness not very far at all from the ground.
