This report has been linked to the following event: Event 6213-2021
Observer
NameDonald H
Experience Level4/5
RemarksThe brightest and longest meteor I’ve seen. I also observed an object further east much like a satellite only bigger brighter none flashing of course. This object was slower and not following the typical flight paths of regular satellites. Lasted around 8 to ten seconds and winked out. A rather unusual night for me. Thank you
