Observer
NameSidney D
Experience Level3/5
RemarksMy eyes were closed, and it was bright enough to make me think someone with a flashlight had pointed it towards my campsite from 100 or so feet away. I reflexively opened my eyes and saw the meteor. I’ve seen dozens upon dozens of shooting stars in my life while camping and being outdoors. Never anything even close to this.
