Observer
NameChuck O
Experience Level3/5
RemarksObject was very bright and left a trail as it moved. It was moving in a north-westerly direction and disappeared over the horizon. It was the biggest meteor I have ever seen. I guess I was just at the right place and the right moment. I can't find any mention of it in local newspapers. Although this was quite early in the morning, anyone driving west on I-10 MUST have seen it. Thanks!
