Observer
NameJessica H
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was chatting with a neighbor and not really paying attention when it showed up. It looked like a ball with a flame going around it and trailing behind it before it vanished. (Cupped around the ball). It really surprised me. The time may be off by a few minutes as it took me a couple of minutes to get inside and check the clock. I tried to google meteor showers first before finding this page to see if there was one going on right now.
