This report has been linked to the following event: Event 511-2019
Observer
NameTom H
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThe meteor overtook me as I was driving in the car. It came from behind me. So I only saw it as it became visible in the upper left corner of my Prius windshield. My gut feeling is it looked like man made space debre reentering. Didn't look like the meteors and fireballs I had seen in the past. Also, it's speed was on the slow side, like an orbital speed. Also, the time I provide is approximate. Could be off by as much as 20 minutes.
