Observer
NameRion M
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI had to provide answers to get through the form, but I did not see a streak - only a glow, and a double flash, I was not "tracking" the meteor across the sky, as it was entirely obscured by trees from my vantage point. I only happened to be looking in the rearview mirror, and in the time it took me to turn around, it went from bright glow, to "lightning bolt" illumination level.
