Observer
NameAngela L
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI really wanted to rank my experience as between 3 and 4 . I am a photographer who regularly photographs the night sky but was not actively taking images at the time I saw it. I truly was in utter awe of what I was seeing. At first I thought ' that is an awful bright light in the sky' then I realized it was racing across the sky faster than a plane but yet 2-3 seconds seemed like forever as I followed it. It was truly surreal. Right before it disappeared several fragments seemed to break off of the back of the fireball and between the fireball and the trail. I do not know if the trail remained after it disappeared but I don't believe it did. Wow! Just Wow!!
