Observer
NameChuck S
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI have see quite a few meteor showers And a comet, but I’ve never seen one quite like this. I caught the initial flash from the corner of my eye and by the time I looked it must have been about the size of a half dollar or golf ball. It was so brings it left tracers in my vision when I looked away. It was an amazing sight.
