Observer
NameKevin S
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI just happened to peer over to my right when I was walking home from work after a car just passed by from behind me, and at first thought that it was a firework but I kept my sight on it and once I saw the blue ball of a fire leave the tail and continued to plummet. I realized what a saw through the opening in the trees was not a firework or a regular shooting star. It was much bigger and brighter then that. Can't believe I witnessed such a thing.
