NameRyan C
Experience Level1/5
RemarksTo me it looked liked an asteroid entering the atmosphere. I heard nothing but you could tell it was burning off and it looked big given the distance. Approx. 4 in if looking at a 50 degree angle. I have never seen one but it was big. I have two other confirmed sightings so far.
