This report has been linked to the following event: Event 1569-2020
Observer
NameJessica F
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis was amazingly bright and green at first and it slowly fizzled. It was a remarkable sight in my area, which is pretty filled with light pollution. I actually thought it was a drone or something crashing when I first saw it, but the way the light slowly and steadily faded was far more like a meteor. I have never seen a fireball but this was so much larger than any shooting star I’ve ever seen.
