Observer
NameBrian T
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI’ve seen many shooting stars, but this was much brighter, larger, greener, and seemed to be slower moving than any other. I’m was looking up and to northeast trying to see the Big Dipper above my home when it caught my eye and moved down diagonally from left to right. The elevations/angles I listed may not be 100% accurate. Also, my view of the actual horizon line was blocked by a stand of trees, so I listed it’s terminal point as 10% above the horizon. Very, very exciting to see!!
