Reports Report 6763q (Event 6763-2022)

This report has been linked to the following event: Event 6763-2022
Observer
NameBeverly T
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI’ve seen many, many meteors because I walk in an elevated place with a broad view of the sky and minimal light pollution. I’ve seen some impressive ones, but this one tops all of them. I had enough time to observe, find the words to tell other walkers “Oh! Look up!!!” Then we all got to see the end where it became brighter & fragmented. They both thought it was an aircraft or a satellite, they couldn’t believe that could have been a meteor.
