Observer
NameDavid F
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI've watched meteor showers with friends and family off and on my whole life, but living in a fairly big city - Austin - often meant light pollution, and I've only seen maybe half a dozen good fireballs in my whole life. Although this one was short, it's brightness and vivid coloring made it the best of them.

Length
RemarksGlowing train that was almost conical, as the terminal flash was so bright
Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksNoticed it only in peripheral vision at first, so by the time I brought my eyes up it has almost completed its run and the flash had already just occurred; so vividly green I thought it might be a firework at first, but its singular streak was too much like the handful of fireballs I've seen for that to be the case; no fragmentation, just very bright
Fragmentation
ObservationNo
