Observer
NameAudrey O
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis was by far the largest object I have ever seen fall to Earth. It was amazingly bright, falling straight down, with a bright tail (but not a persistent tail like a smoke trail). It seemed to be about the size of a pencil eraser in the night sky, and was bright white with a greenish ring. Very cool!
