Observer
NameZoe L
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI've never seen anything like that in my life. It was much bigger than a shooting star and it was actually slow - I felt I could observe it for quite some time before it disappeared and it was truly like a fireball. The flash following was so bright I was sure that one could go look for debris just behind the mountain and find where it had landed
