Observer
NameCaroline K
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI've never seen a meteor so close before, especially with how bright it was. I couldn't tell if it exploded, but I saw it for about 3 seconds before it poofed out of the atmosphere. It burned up and looked on fire, appearing that it was sparking, I was scared it was going to enter the atmosphere and crash with how close it was. I was walking in a parking lot when it happened.
