Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt looked a lot like a very bright white firework being shot downward from the sky. But it had a hot orange tail and too much smoke. Quite a sight if it was a meteor. Quite underwhelming if it was a firework. It seemed to burn up. Not just burn out. By that I mean that it became brighter before extinguishing. It didn’t just illuminate, stay that brightness and then extinguish.
