Observer
NameSusan H
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI watch satellites and meteors nightly. I was walking out at night to get my mail. This fireball was moving almost sse to nnw and was slower than a satellite. It started to fade then wobbled a tiny bit and went out. At first I thought it was an aircraft on fire due to the color. It seemed lower than a satellite but I don’t know. It was very bright and was moving horizontally across the sky directly above me.
