Observer
NameQuinn A
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was between the Moon (overhead) and Jupiter along the ecliptic. That may give you a better idea than my attempts to get the direction correct as I was running at the time. It was absolutely the brightest thing in the sky for those moments and was the most dramatic falling object I can recall in ~40 years of watching the sky.
