Observer
NameChristopher L
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was on I 85/40 headed east at exit 140. Brightest meteor I've ever seen and brilliant green from almost the top of the car windshield to just above the horizon at what I would guess would be due east on 40 just south of Burlington. By coincidence happened to notice a green spot on the freeway miles ahead but I can't imagine it would be related. Please update me with any info!!!
