Observer
NameSuzanne C
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis was an amazing sight. My partner and I were in the hot tub (hence, couldn't tell if it made sound). I saw it and pointed it out to her, never expecting she'd be able to catch sight of it. When it didn't fizzle (regular shooting star), I began to wonder what we were seeing. It was so bright, and it lasted such a long time. It was spectacular. We saw a green shooting star last year, and that was special, but this was really something. I hope others report it!
