NameWilliam M
Experience Level1/5
RemarksMy girlfriend and I were in a car heading uphill, when whatever it was flashed by in the sky incredibly quickly. It was long and had a tail, and disappeared as quick as it came. It was a lot brighter and "closer" looking than other shooting stars I've seen in the past. I remember seeing it go nearly straight down, maybe at an angle starring left and moving right, but still nearly perpendicular to the ground.
