This report has been linked to the following event: Event 4059-2021
Observer
NameNiki N
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI could see a wave of green as the meter pushed through the atmosphere, like a swimmer pushing water. It ran almost parallel to Hwy 285/84. At the end of the sighting, it went slightly brighter, then seemed to burst before it disappeared. I've seen meteor showers before, that were far above, and only white streaks. This seemed far closer. I was driving on the highway at the time. Wish I had a video camera set up!
