This report has been linked to the following event: Event 30-2019
Observer
NameHugh G
Experience Level1/5
RemarksSeen a few shooting stars in my life (68 years old) but nothing like that. The sky was mostly clear. It was close to dusk with still a level of brightness. At the time stars were not apparent. I’m hoping this siting will coincide with other people’s records. If you were fortunate to be looking up at that time you could not fail to notice it. I would welcome any confirmation of what I’d seen. I had just arrived home on our driveway with my wife. I said look, but sadly the event was too fast for her to see. In my wonderment I kept looking for more sitings but nothing else.
