Observer
NameGraham W
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was driving so I'm guessing my position a little. From Ramsgate to Hastings so heading south and west. I'm guessing around 9pm but my timing may be off a little either side. Fireball/shooting star was in front of me just to the left. It looked like coming it was coming straight down and didn't burn out much at all. Looked like it was going to hit France. Have seen quite a lot in my time, Always looking up though! Amazed i still meet people that have never witnessed this.
