Observer
NameTom B
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI have seen hunreds of meteors and this was the biggest yet. it was probably 60% as fantastic as the shuttle I saw one clear night as it tore its way toward landing in Fl. , although this wasmuch faster. I was unnerved by how low it seemed to get towards earth compared to the multitudes I have seen before it went out.
