This report has been linked to the following event: Event 929-2010
Observer
NameGeoff T
Experience Level1/5
RemarksLargest meteor I have ever seen. Apparent diameter was only slightly smaller than a full moon. Flame trail about 1 and 1/2 times the diameter of the fireball. Color of both fireball and trail was blue-ish white. Observed the event through a window. It\'s size and brightness initially made me think it was an aircraft with its landing lights on, but it was quickly apparent from the flame trail that it was a meteor.
