Observer
NameDarryl H
Experience Level3/5
RemarksMyself and a friend were star gazing on the deck of the resort we were staying at, which is in a mountainous area, we observed gian light yellow, almost white fireball streaking from the south west heading north, it blew up into four smaller pieces that passed behind a hill to our North. It was so bright it looked like a Roman Candle kids would shoot off at the 4th of July. It was the most spectacular fireball I had ever seen, we were both so amazed we started to high five each other! It was truly a once in a lifetime event.
