Observer
NameChristine C
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was headed east at the time on the PA turnpike. I look for Orions belt every night while driving tractor trailer. I've seen plenty of meteors but never one as spectacular as this one. The blue was a wide band with a round tip and brite with other colors falling off the tail. I felt very privileged to see that.
