Observer
NameJeff M
Experience Level4/5
RemarksThis fireball was larger than any I've ever seen. It was 5 to 10 times brighter than the ISS passing over. I honestly believe it will have impacted the ground. It was also slower than any fireball I've ever seen. Slow enough that I yelled at my wife and she looked up and saw it too.
