Experience Level3/5
RemarksI have seen meteor showers up north on summer nights, but this was the brightest and longest fireball I have ever seen - it looked like it would slam into the earth only a few miles away. I was driving slightly uphill, and the fireball flashed across my windshield, from top left, to bottom right. Very cool. Coincidentally, I was in Las Vegas on Dec. 22, 2015 which I believe is when the 'space debris' tracked across the sky there, and I saw that. This fireball was much brighter than that, moving much faster, and at a sharper angle towards earth. Thanks for collecting data....
