Observer
NameAlicia W
Experience Level2/5
RemarksBoth my husband and I saw this. We think it might be a firework, but it did not look like any firework either of us has ever seen. It did not look like any meteor I have ever seen, either. I have seen meteor showers before, and this object was extremely bright, extremely long, and it was brightly colored.
