Observer
NameTerra P
Experience Level1/5
RemarksNot 100% sure it was a fireball as I don’t have real astronomy experience, I’ve just seen shooting stars/meteor showers before. This was a big orange glowing ball that shot across the sky while I was looking almost directly up. When I say big, it wasn’t astonishingly huge, just noticeably larger than anything I’ve ever seen in the night sky. When I’ve seen shooting stars, they shoot directly across the sky. But it looked like this orange ball was literally curving along the Milky Way belt. It was only a few seconds before it disappeared. I’m sorry if this was not a fireball and I’m wasting your time - I tried searching online for what it could be and didn’t have much luck. Hopefully you guys will be able to confirm for me or not. Thank you!
