NameJustin M
Experience Level4/5
RemarksIt was small and burned up fast, likely by angle. It looked like it burned up in the air before any impact. It was just a short neon orange streak. I have a background in astronomy, it was relative magnitude to a bit brighter than Venus, and the streak was no wider than 3 fingers at an arms length. I see green ones frequently, so don't often report them, but this was a neon orange, Sodium meteor that must has scraped the top of the magnetosphere and burned up fast. I doubt there would be any debris by the angle it appeared before it disintegrated. If there are, they'd be west of 15 Mile and Utica, but I watched it burn up in one or two seconds.
