Observer
Namejulie J
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI owned a horse ranch on a tall bluff, before being hit head-on by a drunk, and I seen a lot of meteor showers and fire balls at night but this one was huge! This one looked so close and appeared to move slower/stay in sky longer than any I've ever seen! I would love to find out if it made it through the atmosphere!

Terminal flash

RemarksIt went behind a fir tree branch at that moment but I was able to see a flash. It had orange fragments coming off it the entire time it was traveling but did NOT appear to get smaller before flashing out. It appeared to me to have entered the earth's atmosphere intact.
