Observer
NameJamien R
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis appeared as the largest shooting star I've ever seen with a bright red tail. I was driving and I actually slammed on the brakes thinking it might have been a plane crashing. I saw it as I drove into an open area with no trees, so not sure how long it was visible beforehand.
