Observer
NameJoe H
Experience Level3/5
RemarksWas driving so no way to assess sound. Have observed many meteors, this was by far the brightest and longest lasting I've ever seen and this was right at dawn, so some ambient light. Brighter than -7 magnitude iridium flares I've seen. There were trailing sparks or flames. Very bright the entire time of travel. Duration was longest I've ever seen, perhaps greater than 10 seconds.
