Observer
NameShona N
Experience Level2/5
RemarksTime of observation is approximate, plus or minus 15 minutes. Object was observed through a home window, I only noticed it outside due to its brightness. I did not observe the fireball’s full trajectory due to trees and the limited line of sight due to the window frame. Very bright overall and there was a persistent smoke trail.
