Observer
NameFinn M
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was walking out my parents house to go into the rental unit in the back and it shot across the sky as i looked up because i knew there was a meteor shower at the time and i always go outside and take a look even though i don't own a telescope i always try and look with my own eyes and i sometimes see one but this was the first time i ever saw this and i didn't know what it was until i found this site just now and discovered i witnessed a fireball not a meteor as i thought it was. For a first witness it spooked me because i wasn't expecting to see it, but yet it was really neat
