Observer
NameAlicia R
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was the largest, brightest, and most colorful "shooting star" I have ever seen in my life. I am a photographer and have caught photos of shooting stars during meteor showers many times laying out all night and setting up my camera to shoot all night. This was incredible! I can only imagine it being a fireball. I hope others got to see it as well.
