Experience Level2/5
RemarksI have estimated the time i saw this fireball. I did not have my phone with me. I came inside at 2150. I know it was at least 20 minutes prior. There was no more light streaking in the western sky so that should make it after 2100. It was the brightest and largest fireball or meteor I have ever witnessed. It lasted 3 seconds. I used the fist measuring method to locate and view the comet when it came by. At arms length, this fireball was about pencil eraser sized.
