Observer
NameJames W
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI live in a heavily light polluted city and there was still a good amount of afternoon light. It was not completely dark yet by any means, and this was extremely bright and very large. I thought it was a low flying high speed jet at first until i saw how fast it was traveling and then it disappeared realizing it was a shooting star/meteor/fireball. I've lived on air bases and this was nothing I've ever seen, even in videos. I grew up in Alaska and have witnessed many shooting stars and star/planet sightings. This is by far the most extreme case of a "shooting star/fireball/meteor" I have ever witnessed.
