Observer
NameKen C
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI happened to be looking in exactly the right spot to witness this entire event. It caught the other 30 or so people by complete surprise, if they were not looking at the sky before, the flash made everyone aware and most were able to see the tail. It looked exactly like the photo in Poland http://www.amsmeteors.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/fireball.jpg and was truly amazing.
