Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was beautiful. A real attention getter. I had just fed the horses and was climbing into the side by side when I saw it out of the corner of my eye. It was like a large round whitish ball with a tail of red sparkles, going from southeast to southwest, I'm 76, and it was far larger than any "shooting star" as we used to call small meteorites, and I lost sight of it only because of a hill to the southwest. Delightful experience. I'd love to hear more about it.
