Observer
NameJohanna W
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis was not a meteor shower. I have seen one of those. This was a massive very bright object streaking across the sky. I also saw the Russian satellite disintegrate over New Zealand a couple of years back. That was a slow moving glow by comparison. This was so much brighter and faster. I was so lucky to be looking up at the sky at exactly the right moment!
