Observer
NameMark J
Experience Level3/5
RemarksNever seen a meteor like this. Most times it is very fast / fleeting and burns out very quickly. You know, like you're not even sure if you really saw it. This one got me off the couch as I saw it through my picture window while watching TV. Was slow enough for me to sit up and watch for a few more seconds. Very large and very bright. Did not burn out. Disappeared over the horizon line.
