Observer
NameElisha B
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI showed it to a man that was fishing on the bank beside me. He had never seen a "shooting star" before. Not even little ones during a meteor shower, so it was cool that his first one was that spectacular! Two guys that had been fishing a near by river asked if we saw it shortly after it. If you lived near here and were outside, you couldn't miss it!
