Observer
NameJoseph & Sasha S
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis streak ripped through the sky starting so low. & vertically headed straight down nearly to the horizon. Like it must've landed in Pinnacles National Park... Near Soledad CA. It was so bright when we saw it at its lowest point that it must've been through the atmosphere and just about to hit the earth's surface !!
