Observer
NameEvelyn P
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI have never seen such a bright fireball in my life. I have experienced meteor showers however this was beyond me. I had to look up more information. The colour was brilliant, very bright and colourful. The fireball was large, in the sky it appeared to be the size of a basketball in the sky. Fascinating. I would love to hear back about this.
