Observer
NameStephen R
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI noted the fireball and told my colleauges when I got to work..the fireball looked like it was about to make contact with ground relatively close to where I was because of the angle it was travelling. I was very suprised that it was not reported by many more people in Ireland.I described it to my colleauges that morning as a Meteor and told my girlfriend via a social media text message later that day.
