This report has been linked to the following event: Event 5934-2018
Observer
NameSusan B
Experience Level2/5
RemarksAfter seeing “shooting star”, I waited for a sound or to see if there was any more (indicating fireworks or firecrackers). But there was no sound and only the one “star”. It was quite large - much larger than any of the stars/planets or aircraft in the sky. It really surprised me but it was amazing. I’ve only seen “shooting stars” a couple times, but they were tiny and much higher in the sky - nothing as exciting as this.
