RemarksAmazing sighting! No other like it that I've ever seen. At first glimpse I thought it was your ordinary shooting star then it got bigger and bigger and exploded and still striked through the sky and it felt like it all lasted a life time. It was headed towards Lake Erie which was just one street over from where I was driving. Awesome!
