NameJames M
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThe meteor may have made noise but was hard to tell as we were less than 50 feet away from a very busy route 106 which was carrying traffic from the New Hampshire Motor Speedway following the NASCAR Sylvania 300 race event. Hearing may have also been still recovering from a very loud day at the race.
