Observer
NameChris
Experience Level2/5
RemarksWhat was so unusual, is that it seemed so very close, and it felt like it was coming straight at us from the east and passing overhead before descending in the west where it looked like it burnt out. Before I have only seen them in the distance, where you can observe the whole thing in about a second or less. This was so bright and close and seemingly low and lasted so much longer than the ones you see in the far distance. It was bright white with some greenish blue and then some orange trailing sparks.
