Observer
NameCynthia M
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was so large and bright that I could see it looking out my window, even with the nighttime glare! I was watching TV and it immediately caught my attention! During a normal meteor shower I cannot see them from inside my house. I have to go outside where it's dark to have any chance of seeing anything!
