Observer
NameR B
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI have been fortunate to have seen several instances of this type of entry over the years in and around Calgary, but this was by far the brightest and lit up the entire sky and ground. It's hard to say exactly where it may have impacted the ground but it looked like it was heading towards Ferintosh, above the Camrose area. Thanks.
