Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was just so bright and beautiful. I felt an overwhelming feeling of peace and euphoria. Was definitely something I will never forget. After reading about it on our local news site and American Meteor Association and many others. I became informed of the constellation it emerged from being Taurus and it was yet another extraordinary coincidence being I am Taurus with birthday being May 19th, 1975. A truly unforgettable and AMAZING event to have witnessed.
