Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was awesome!!! My friend was in the car too and we both saw it at the same time. We couldn't believe what we were seeing but I immediately knew it was a meteor! She said it was a shooting star, but I knew it was too big and too bright. I told her it would be on the news and she would then know it was a meteor. Awesome!
