Observer
NameRosanna G
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI thought it was sprinkling rain but the skies were clear that night, so wondered if meteor dust was falling on me. I was very dehydrated the next day. I was taking a 20 minute walk outside when I noticed the meteor. It happened very quickly and didn’t see where it landed but it had to be very close to where I was. It was flying over the 3 story building I was in front of in a downward, curved motion.
