This report has been linked to the following event: Event 119-2020
Observer
NameVirginia R
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was in bed awake with my eyes closed. A huge beam of light came into my window and hit my bed, as if a spotlight was shining on my bed. My bed is on the second floor and the light was coming at a high angle in the sky. That light lasted a second or two. I whipped my head up to look out the window and saw the fireball for about three seconds. I assume the beam of light was the result of a big flash of light as the fireball came into our atmosphere. That beam of light on my bed made me look out the window.
