Experience Level2/5
RemarksAlmost a Full Moon on the 18th so night sky was very clear and moon was huge like super moon. Was also 1 day before meteorological spring. It was the brightest event and closest thing i have seen in the stars in my life. I will never forget it and my wife saw it too. Ive seen the space station fly by when it was at is closest to earth back in 2013ish and other shooting stare etc,,, But this was like a real fireball or meteor. Unbelievable!
