Observer
NameRichard F
Experience Level2/5
RemarksWhile driving with a coworker we saw a large orange/yellow ball travelling quickly and low in the sky. As we pointed to it it fragmented and streaked before continuing below the horizon. It was much larger than any shooting star either of us have seen before which is why I decided to report it.
