This report has been linked to the following event: Event 3384-2014
Observer
NameDavid W
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThe reason I didn't hear sound is because I was driving a vehicle at the time. But it was very low on the horizon, Biggest meteor or fireball I have ever seen by far. It came from west-southwest and travelled east-northeast, entered my field of view near the top of my windshield and left my sight at mid-windshield, so it appeared to be falling. If I had been standing instead of driving it would have basically approached me from behind and gone over my head.
