Observer
NameLouise L
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI am 60 years old and I walk a lot at night so have seen my fair share of meteors. This one lasted longer than any other i have seen and so we were able to see more detail than usual. Also the first time I have seen one before full dark. Because of the large size and long train, it was really spectacular.

RemarksA long glowing train followed the very large meteor. Meteor was more than 5 times the size of largest planet we see in the sky. It was like a long fire train but light yellow with orange and green and red flashes. Very beautiful and not going down as much as gently arcing across the sky. It was not fully dark yet.
