NameMike D
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was the single most spectacular thing i have ever seen in the sky, possibly only eclipsed by hailee comet. It was bright and when i first saw it i thought it was a plane witha contrail but the contrail was bright. my next thought was that it was a contrail lit up by a big city. but then as it got closer it looked like a falling star or space debris. i expected it to stop but it kept going. i raced to my bedroom and told my wife to come look at it. when it was right above me it was bright, and there were several smaller pieces behind it, each with their own tail. The tail was quite long. the whole experiance lasted about half a minute and the fireball started on the south horizon and ended behind the north horizon. it appeared to still be going strong when it disappeared behind the horizon.
