Observer
NameRachel H
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was hard to give exact details, other than to say it was awesome - I was in absolute awe when i saw it! I was sitting inside my house, looking out the window (I live rural so no lights around and we have big windows). I was looking out to the North/West and it came into my view in the north and travelled through to the west. it was VERY big and looked VERY close - way more up close than I have ever seen a shooting star look. It would have been unbelievable to have seen it in full standing outside. Amazing!!

Remarksthe ball at the front was huge and mainly a very bright light colour but the tail was amazing, I could see lots of individual burning balls surrounded by a hazy light colour. The chunky bits in the tail were different colours, like I think some reds or orange??
