Observer
NameChristina F
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI should have reported when I saw this. My memory is already fading it was so fast and I had no idea what I was looking at . My observation may not be much help but I was in Christiana Delaware. I I was facing West and this was the biggest brightest shooting star I have ever seen. When I realized it could not have been a shooting star I thought a plane was crashing. It was an amazing sight.
