Observer
NameJames B
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI have seen meteors before, but never one as large or bright as this. Rather than a streak of light, this had a flaming tail. I was sitting in my upstairs office and it appeared above the treeline to the south & east. It only lasted a couple of seconds. I heard no sound, but I was inside.
