Observer
NameFred J
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis object started out like a typical meteor, soft yellowish glow with a tail, but it grew much brighter within 10 degrees of arc then grew greenish white and seemed to get much larger and brighter. It almost appeared to change it's downward angle but that could be due to dimming as it past below the horizon. This was by far the brightest meteor i've ever witnessed in my 57 years
