RemarksI saw what I thought was a very, very bright shooting star with a trail left behind it. I even told someone it was the brightest shooting star I had ever seen, as it seemed to light up the sky. It quickly left a trail, and before disappearing got extremely bright before quickly vanishing -- along with the majority of the trail dissipating very quickly as well. It was probably 2-3 seconds long in total and was seen from the Iron Horse statue in Watkinsville, GA.
