Observer
NameRachel R
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was eating dinner outside at a restaurant and something caught my eye and I looked up and saw this what looked like to be a fireball in the sky (different from a shooting star) - I've never seen anything like this before. It was a ball that looked like it was on fire, very orange and much lower to the horizon line than a shooting star.
