Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was driving on the highway facing south west and this HUGE \"shooting star\" flew over head from south to north. I saw it for more than a couple seconds and it was very bright. It looked extremely close and was rather breathtaking, which is why I am so interested and would love to find out more information. What a sight!
