Observer
NameWilliam H
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was riding my motorcycle and the road was tree lined so I might have been able to hear some noise had it been quieter and I may have been able to see the meteoer for a longer period of time had the trees not obscured my view. The sky was blue and completely clear so I had a great view, if only for a brief second or two. Very awesome and amazing to see how God has created our atmosphere to protect the earth from flying objects!
