Observer
NameLindsey R
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was biking up a hill and saw the fireball streak above/beside me going roughly East to West. It was still dusk- just after sunset and the sky was still fairly bright. It looked as if it would land - I Italy I thought it was something exploding, but did not hear sound. It was bright white, rimmed in orange/red with a long white/ bluish green tail - like the hot part of a fire. Directly after I saw two smaller meteors which were “normal” shooting stat sized, but brighter bc sky was still light. These didn’t look like the fireball broke, so much as were separate meteors. This was seen by several friends, and community members as well. Incredible!
