Observer
NameJohn K
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was driving and lost sight of the object behind trees before the object would have disappeared beyond the horizon. I heard no noise in the car, the radio was on and GPS was talking to me. I've seen many shooting stars and this was significantly brighter and more coloured and lasted longer than any I have seen before. It was dark so no smoke trail was visible to me.
