Observer
NameGreg M
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI've never seen a fireball like this, I have seen many meteor showers in the past. This was very large and much closer than a meteor shower. I waited for a sound but never heard anything. It was spectacular. I was having a conversation with my wife and son in the car and it crossed directly in front of us as we were driving.
