Observer
NameJohn C
Experience Level3/5
RemarksAt first, I thought that it was someone's headlights shining fully in my direction as they pulled out of their driveway across the street. It was that bright. As I turned in the direction of the bright light, I noticed that it was up in the sky, not on the road. It was not a streak across the sky, as I have seen with other meteors. It was a blue-green ball of light moving across the sky, with just a short streak behind the ball of light. It only lasted for about 3 to 5 seconds, and just faded out.
