Observer
NameJason W
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI recorded a video of this fireball. The fireball was visible for about 90 seconds from the beginning of the recording until it broke apart. I began recording about ten seconds after I noticed the meteor so the total time I observed the meteor was about 100 seconds. I also believe that fragments of the meteor could have reached the ground.
