Observer
NameKathryn M
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI don't know the exact time. It was approximately 8pm. I saw a very large, wide, meteor. Usually I see very narrow small shooting stars. This was the biggest & brightest I have ever seen and can't believe no one is talking about it on the news. It was just a second and too late for my friends to turn around to see it, but I was shocked.
