This report has been linked to the following event: Event 4138-2019
Observer
NameBeth B
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI thought it was a plane given speed it was moving (which wasn’t very fast) It was bright orange like a fireball and bigger than lights on a plane. It was moving quite slowly across the sky. I kept expecting it to disappear but it just kept going. Finally I saw it brighten and then just go out. I saw a shooting star at the same time as I was watching this so I do think it was part of the meteor shower last night. But I have never seen anything like it. It was amazing!
