Observer
NameMarci R
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was driving on a country road and I saw this very large, bright orange "falling star-like" object. However, it was much bigger than a falling star and appeared much closer to earth. It was incredible to witness. I've never seen anything so large and bright orange like that before! It lasted approximately 2-3 seconds.
