Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt looked similar to a gold firework but it was going down instead of up and it was much brighter and larger than a firework would be - considering the distance. It was similar to a shooting star but much larger and didn’t disappear as quickly. It was amazing and beautiful. It lasted approx 5 seconds from the time I noticed it. I’m not sure how long it was in the sky prior to me seeing it because it was there when I looked over.
