Observer
NameMarc C
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis was very striking and lasted long enough for me to listen for noise and observe the trail. It was faster than what I would ever expect for a plane. It was very bright and seemed very close. This was brighter than any meteor showers that I have observed. It was striking enough for me to find this website and record my observations.
