This report has been linked to the following event: Event 1915-2018
Observer
NameLisa L
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was actually looking up at the ISS when this suddenly came into my view. I was actually quite shocked at first, as I have never seen a fireball before. So, of course, Im immediately online looking to see what has crashed to Earth. This was a beautifully rare, if only a "once in a lifetime event" (first-timer at age 55) and wonderful experience. I hope to have this experience at least once more before "My View" will be from a new angle. ;)
