Observer
NameKristie M
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI thought it was a stray singular firework at first, one that didn't go off right, coming from the neighbor's field/house, I looked for more of it in the sky, but I realized that there had been no sound & that it was NOT a firecracker but likely some object falling through the Earth's atmosphere and brightly glowing/burning green with a very bright "ball" at the front. It was amazing. I researched possibilities and found this website.
