Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was overhead in front of me, the path was a straight line east to west, began close to the milkyway & we went west, kept going until out of sight. It was very large & green & seemed VERY CLOSE. The closest largest fireball I've ever seen. Was camping for a week so reporting it was delayed.
