Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was traveling east on Rt 144 at the time. I was on the phone with a friend that was traveling east as well. He was south of me on Rt 200 and saw it also.It was huge by far the largest and closest meteor I have ever seen! The amount of particles coming off of it was amazing. So much so that I thought it was going to blow up at any second.
