Observer
NameAmy B
Experience Level2/5
RemarksAt first I thought it was a plane with an orangey light. But then it started moving much faster than a plane. It got brighter and I could see the meteor just before it got brighter and went out completely. It lasted about 3 or 4 seconds. I’ve never seen anything like it!
