This report has been linked to the following event: Event 1382-2016
Observer
NameSarah B
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI had been outdoors for several hours prior to viewing this event. I happened to stand up and stretch, facing north, when I glanced up and spotted, what I thought was a very bright and thick shooting star. I was sitting on a patio south of the house that I was visiting. The meteor was viewed over the house roof and actually disappeared behind the roof line therefore I did not have a good view to report its duration or length.
