NameRay M
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was only guessing the trajectory. I was driving down the highway in a 2019 F150 FX4 and the meteor came into view in the top driver's side of the windshield and lasted to the middle of the windshield in a left to right trajectory. I was headed west at the time. It looked as if it was also headed in a west, northwest trajectory as well. I hope that helps.

RemarksIt looked and acted just like the white trail left by an airplane and over time it drifted in the air currents just like the white trail of an airplane. This trail lasted well over five minutes. This was the coolest this I've ever seen. I actually watch this meteor break apart! I saw small pieces break apart. Right before it disappeared it's like it exploded into small pieces! I reallly hope I'm not the only one that saw this!
