Observer
NameElizabeth
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt seemed to be bigger than any star, meteorite or comet I\'ve ever seen. I would say about 1/8 the size of the full moon the other night. If I held a dime at the end of my outstretched arm, it would be about 3/4 the size of a dime. Or the size of the tip of my pinky finger (circular wise).
