Observer
NameHenry R
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThe most amazing thing I've ever seen. I was lying in bed watching Netflix and then this incredibly bright light lit up my room from outside. I thought it was a helicopter search light at first but quickly realised it wasn't. There was already an almost full moon too so the sky was already fairly bright - the meteor was considerably brighter than the moon, and a much more intense white colour. I watched it fly maybe 30 degrees before it exploded. The explosion was a bright red/orange colour and I'd guess it broke into 4 or 5 major parts before completing dissappearing.
