Observer
NameRuth W
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was NOT a shooting star that was a quick thin line up in the sky. This was larger, close to the ground, moved fast. It was bigger than fireworks (the ball that shoots up) and it only lasted a few seconds - the trail was long. It got bright near the end and then fizzled kinda crazy like and quickly gone. SOOOOO AMAZING! Similar to meteors I’ve seen, but this one was CLOSER and much brighter!
