Observer
NameMary W
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was driving when it appeared, and I was very surprised when I saw it. I was concerned that it might be a small plane going down, but as I continued to drive, it had vanished from sight. It was very bright, but larger than any meteor shower I've ever seen. It was one burst, larger at the front then narrowed toward the back end.I read online that a dozen people had seen something last night, and I thought to myself "oh my gosh - that's what I saw!"
