Observer
NameLeslie F
Experience Level1/5
RemarksJust driving down the road and saw it. Low, very bright and very brief but I knew instantly what it was. I have seen meteor showers/“shooting stars” as well as the space station and many types of aircraft and drone and this was none of those. Significantly larger and brighter. Most of those are dots in the sky and this was literally a fireball falling straight down. Disappeared over the tree line in a hilly/low mountainous area.
