Observer
NameTravis B
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was driving home from the grocery store (I shop in the middle of the night to avoid crowds) when I saw it. My location on Egret is an estimation but it was in that general area. The fireball was most definitely a very vibrant green, and I would best describe it as looking like when you see a large firework being launched in to the air during a fireworks show, only in reverse as this was flying down towards the Earth.
