This report has been linked to the following event: Event 1425-2020
Observer
NameUna M
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis was the closest, biggest, and longest viewing experience. I've never considered reporting other shooting stars I've viewed because they all seemed common. This appeared much larger and while it was quick, is lasted longer and the speed seemed slower if that makes sense. I was standing on deck in back of house looking east.
