Observer
NamePeggy S
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThis was without a doubt the most amazing thing I ever saw. It was HUGE sparkly and bright, all white no color. The tail was long and it seemed like the entire top part of the my front window of the car had the fireball and train in it's view. I was able to "follow" the fireball with my eyes. It was not a flash.

RemarksA glowing white train following a sparkly fireball. I've only seen shooting stars so in comparison it felt like it was gliding along. I was in the car with another person who saw it first. Came from my left side of the car. We saw it through the front window of the car, it almost felt like it was moving in slow motion or a scene Disney movie.
