Observer
NameByron G
Experience Level2/5
RemarksMost meteors within the city don't have a bright flash that lights up the ground around you. This one did. Unfortunately I didn't see the actual fireball as it came in behind me. It was the flash that caused me to turn around quickly and that is when I saw the train which stayed lit for about 10 seconds.
