Observer
NameCaroline D
Experience Level1/5
RemarksMy daughter and I both saw it, it was so bright and so large, I stopped in the middle of the road as I was driving. I lived in Maine as a child, familiar with the Milky Way and aurora borealis, and have never seen anything like this, dropping so fast and straight out of the sky. It was more amazing even than the eclipse, which is what we were driving to view
