This report has been linked to the following event: Event 228-2019
Observer
NameLaura W
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was bright and went straight down. I have seen meteors before but always so far away....never this close. At first didn't register that it was even a meteor for this reason. Burnt out surprisingly close to earth. Did not hear a sound at all. I have a pretty good idea of the area that it could have fallen in as it was so close to earth.
