This report has been linked to the following event: Event 3246-2013
Observer
NameGary M
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI have uncorrected 20-10 to 20-15 vision so I saw this very clearly in a very clear dusk sky. It was low on the horizon and was different than when I watch meteors at night that shoot across the sky as just a line with no flash. This seemed close to the ground. It was awesome.
