Observer
NameSami F
Experience Level4/5
RemarksThis was one of the brightest and most brilliant meteors that I have ever seen. Especially considering we do not have very dark skies here in Seattle. It was amazing. And out of about 15 people standing outside, I was the only one who was looking at the sky at the time. They all missed out on this epic fireball!
