Observer
NameKatt N
Experience Level3/5
RemarksWe live in a busy part of town. Any noises could have been confused with city sounds. There is also quite a bit of light from a grocery store in the view, as well as a church parking lot in our immediate backyard. Despite the lights, we both saw this occurrence and it was as large and bright as the street lamps in the parking lot. We have seen many meteors from our porch here, but nothing quite like this one!
