Observer
NameAndrew H
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI’ve never seen anything that big and bright fall from the sky especially near city limits. I was indoors facing the north when I noticed it. It was gone within a few seconds. It appeared from the top of the window so it could have possibly started at a higher angle from the horizon.
