Observer
NameBill M
Experience Level4/5
RemarksMy wife and I both saw this from inside while watching tv. It was bright enough to be seen clearly through the window from a bright room while watching TV. It shot straight down at a steep angle and looked to break up as it passed below the horizon. Looked as if it could have made it to earth. I really wish I could have seen this from outside. Much brighter than Venus.
