Observer
NameSusann D
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI am old enough to have seen “shooting stars” but never in my LIFE have I seen one so bright, and for so long.. my husband and I were in the car, I saw it, leaned forward to see better (thought it was the landing light fro a plane) and said to my husband (who was driving) “what is that?” And he was able to see it too, and then it was gone. We figured it was a comet or something.. pretty darn cool.
