Observer
NameJoanne V
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt took us by surprise with its closeness and brightness, was driving and my passenger thought it might have been a firework but there was no sound. It seemed to disappear as it fell but then reappeared briefly and disappeared just before we assume it would have hit the ground. Seemed so close to us. Have seen meteor showers before with shooting stars but never anything quite like this.
