Experience Level5/5
RemarksAt approximately 10:27 pm EDT looking due North while driving north on route 3 in Nashua, NH, my wife Jane Walker and I witnessed a fantastic, slow-moving bolide traveling straight down. It lasted 3 or 4 seconds and was tremendously bright, I’d say magnitude -6 at peak. It quickly brightened and was green in color.
