Observer
NameAlly D
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThe trail was south to north almost crossing the zenith. I’m not sure if I filled out the orientation pages correctly. I’m not sure of the exact time but close to 8pm. This was at dusk and the sky was still bright so its hard to say the magnitude. It was very bright and drew my attention sharply. I think it would have thrown shadows in a dark sky. Vega was just visible near the zenith but few other stars were clearly out. I an an experienced astronomer but not a frequent meteor observer.
