Observer
NameCarol G
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was enormous. I was pulling down my driveway when I saw this "ball" with a VERY short tail arc in the sky. I enjoy watching the night sky and have never seen anything more than a shooting star. I can't stress enough how enormous this was. Very colorful too, my recollection is that the very short "tail" was lighter in color than the rest of this very colorful ball. Wow!
