Observer
NameJerry & Grant P
Experience Level1/5
RemarksMy son & I were driving in Northwest Arkansas toward the Missouri line aprox 8:00 pm. So it would have been coming down some where over Missouri or possibly Kansas. We have observed many , what we call, shooting stars . But I don't remember ever seeing one coming down at such a straight down angel as this one . And was rather large in size, compared to what we normally see. So made me think it was closer than normal. My son & I watch the night skys on many occasions but not knowledge ably . Just pleasurable thing for us to do.
