Observer
NameCynthia E
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was very exciting to see. So much so that while driving I had time to see it happen , point to it twice saying "look at that "and the 3 people in the car still had time To look up and see it before it disappeared. Usually a shooting star is too quick for one to say something in time for other people to look up and actually see it Plus the colors on this was very bright , kind of shocking, and lasted a good while. Just looking from the car the green color burst out suddenly in the sky, the sudden flash was so bright it caught my peripheral vision and took my attention away from looking at the road. It looked to be at first approximately 3/8 inch diameter then streaked across gradually changing colors and thinning to a fine line that disappeared. I'll never forget it
