Experience Level1/5
RemarksThis was the most impressive meteorite or \"shooting star\" I have ever seen. My brother and I were in a car and both saw it. I thought it was just fireworks at first, but then realized how straight it stayed on the horizon and how fast it was going. The way it fragmented was impressive! Very cool!
