Observer
NameMaryAnn M
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis was the most fantastic thing I've ever seen in the night sky. I was just coming out onto the patio. I had just turned the lights out so I could go outside and observe the stars. Even though my eyes were adjusting to the darkness the fireball looked BIG and so bright and firey. I couldn't believe how long it lasted. An incredible experience I will never forget.
