Observer
NameLisa K
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI have seen several shooting starts in my life but this was a very bright and very large fireball. I couldn't believe how low in the sky it was and first thought it might be some sort of firework. I half expected to hear a boom and firetrucks. I realize this isn't scientific data but describes my experience. It was beautiful, fascinating and I hope to see another some day.
