Observer
NameRemi B
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI've seen multiples fireballs and meteors in the past (I work in astronomy) but I think it's the first time I saw one during daytime! The brightness was hard to estimate because of this but it was much brighter than Venus. If if would have been nighttime, I'm pretty sure this would have been at least as bright as the full Moon. I'm not 100% sure for the altitude because I was driving, but it was somewhere between 20° and 40°.
