Observer
NameRhonda & Jeff P
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was the lowest shooting star I have ever saw in my life. It was awesome. It put the final touches on our Christmas night. We were excited that we actually got to see such a spectacular view together. There was also another car coming from the direction we were going. We were heading North and the other car was headed south. We both stopped in the middle of Route 130 as we watched the meteor fall out of sight. It looked like it fell pretty close.
