This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2989-2022
Observer
NameNicholas L
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was driving when I saw the meteor so I can not be certain of my precise location. The object was either to the east or northeast of my location, and exceptionally bright (easily the brightest object in the sky). I had the impression that the object was closer in terms of altitude than most other meteors that I have seen, but I have no factual basis for this impression. Also the object was large enough in the sky that I could rule out airplane/helicopter as an explanation.
