Observer
NameJoseph B
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt wasn’t very big in size compared to photos online, but it was HUGE when compared to the shooting stars I've seen in the past. It felt quite low to earth and was super bright. At first I thought somebody near by threw up some type of light up toy. Only when it kept going up and getting brighter before disappearing did I realize what I just saw. NEVER seen anything like that in my life and I’ve watched some historical meteor showers in the past
