RemarksI took an astrology course in college and we got to see a meteor shower through huge telescopes off campus in the middle of nowhere - this thing was SO BIG and SO BRIGHT in comparison to those showers. It wasn’t totally dark yet and it lit up the sky around it. Around 9pm I think, we were outside without clocks on us.
