Observer
NameNatalie K
Experience Level3/5
RemarksMy 18 year old son Aidan was in the car with me and saw the same thing as well. Something I thought was interesting was instead of a "streak across the sky", which is how shooting stars tend to look and how the one fireball I'd seen before looked, this one appeared to be moving away from us in almost the same direction we were facing. So the trail was short and looked like a rock skipping on a pond or a fish jumping instead of like a shooting star, trail-wise
