Observer
NameRodney
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThe trail was a shallow arc, unlike other meteors I\'ve seen before which usually fall in a straight line. It also moved relaively slow, which I assume means it was at a great distance. I initially thought it was a flare but it didn\'t follow the sharp curve of a flare.
