Experience Level2/5
RemarksFireball had a slight arc to trajectory, heading from East to West.. We've seen dozens of shooting stars, this was much larger and appeared to be much closer then we've ever seen. More like a jet or rocket burning up 10 miles in front of us. Our time of sighting may be off by 10 minutes in either direction.
