Observer
NameGarron G
Experience Level1/5
RemarksAt first we thought it was a lone firework, but there was no explosion, we never saw it going upward, and we found no trace of fireworks on the ground in the vicinity. We thought it might be a meteorite. We asked a boy who was out at the same time who saw it what he thought it was, and he said he described what he saw to his dad who said it sounded like a meteorite. He agreed that it probably was not fireworks.
