This report has been linked to the following event: Event 1561-2020
Observer
NameZachary D
Experience Level1/5
RemarksMy dash cam footage did not directly look at the fireball but it captured the immense amount of light and multiple flashes that I seen in my car during the event.There was absolutely no sound, but I was rather impressed with how bright this event was. This was about 20 times brighter than the brightest lightning I have ever seen. It lit up the entire sky with green light.I would guesstimate about 3 seconds.I have the original footage that I was filming on my laptop via my camera but the quality is really bad and the file is very large. If you need it reach out. This event prompted me to upgrade to an HD dash cam.
