Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was watching my iPad in the dark and our big windows are always open with the blinds up because we have no neighbors to the back. Northwest of me a blue fireball meteor appeared. It was very bright and I’ve seen probably 3+ shooting stars and a couple meteor showers. It was unlike and of those and super bright with flare feel. Ball was blue and it had light blue and white glowing steak behind it. Probably only visible for 2-3 seconds. I exclaimed out loud, whoaaa, and turned to my wife disappointed she was asleep. Immediately went online to see where I could learn more and found your site.
