This report has been linked to the following event: Event 4047-2015
Observer
NameMary C
Experience Level2/5
RemarksHave seen several meteors and I initially though this was something crashing over downtown Chattanooga because it appeared so close and low on the horizon. Much brighter than the shooting stars I'd seen before. I know others saw it because I was on a busy highway and brake lights flashed and the traffic slowed right when it appeared.
