Experience Level1/5
RemarksI saw a shooting star meteorite around 7:00pm tonight. We were driving down Melinda and watched it over Holy Jim Area. It was falling, not going up like a rocket. It started as a vivid shooting start and became wider in appearance and brightness with a long orange/red tail that ended with a large green burst ending. It really was quite fantastic to witness.
