Experience Level2/5
RemarksJust was sitting in my backyard facing north/northwest when I noticed a flash out of the corner of my eye. That's when I saw the meteor. It was a hot blue/white. It entered my field of vision from the east and was heading west. A small fragment split off heading northwest. It must have hit the pacific ocean somewhere due west of Del Mar in San Diego.
