Observer
NameChristy L
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI had seen a much smaller, more obvious meteor a few weeks ago, coincidentally driving North at night on the same highway (23), but this one was MUCH larger, and much lower. I thought it was going to hit the Earth. It burned up just before it would have hit thank goodness. It was an amazing sight, one I doubt I'll ever see again so large & low.
