This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2782-2022
Observer
NameLiz B
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was driving southbound at highway speeds, so the beginning and ending angles/positions are tough but I had a very clear view with zero other traffic and no light pollution. It began above the crest of the mountains to the west and ended in the direction of Flathead Lake, which I was driving toward from Kalispell, MT. It was so orange & large compared to typical high "shooting stars" I have seen. Amazing!
