Observer
NameMike T
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI have been watching meteor showers for over 60 years. This is one of the top 3 brightest fireballs I have seen. I suspect it is a Perseid but about 30 minutes later I saw a much smaller, but still bright, meteor going due east (~90 degrees from the fireball).
