Observer
NameGail H
Experience Level1/5
RemarksA fireball with a tail. Either a comet or a meteor burning up. We were making a right hand turn onto our street and an immediate left into our driveway. We were so stunned that we didn’t fully notice everything. And it was larger than a typical shooting star and very visible and bright. Could see the fire trailing it. Never saw anything like it.
