Observer
NameDerek G
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThere was no detonation or bright flash(I was really hoping to see one). The meteor was traveling west in the southern hemisphere of the sky. It was about the size of a large plane high in the sky. From my perspective it appeared to be about half the size of a dime traveling across the sky/windshield.
