This report has been linked to the following event: Event 3633-2014
Observer
NameKelly M
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI was in the car at the time, so it may have been brighter than I stated due to windshield dimming. Also it appeared from above so I only have the time it was in my view after becoming visible in the windshield. It was slow moving for meteor, taking a 3-5 seconds to vanish from sight. I estimate it vanished near or not far to the left of Gemini, though I was unable to see stars due to windshield and bright lights in the shopping centers up the road. The meteor clearly outshone all these dimming effects so it was quite brilliant.
