Observer
NamePaul S
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI was driving and at a stop light, I noticed Orion's belt and looked towards it. This is when I saw the fire ball. It was a clear night. I know the exact time because I called my wife to tell her about it. It was the biggest meteor I saw in my entire life and I did happen to see a meteor that I later found impacted near a classmates home in 1966 when I was a child. Feel free to contact me
