Observer
NameMeg P
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI have never seen anything like it before but it matched pictures of fireballs I looked up afterwards, I first thought it was the biggest shooting star I’d ever seen but it appeared to be so close to the ground unlike the two conventional ‘high in the sky’ shooting stars I’d seen just moments prior (this was during the Perseids meteor shower timeframe).
