This report has been linked to the following event: Event 3525-2020
Observer
NameAmy R
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI have seen a few fireballs before over the last decade, but this one was especially brilliant, and it was the first time I’ve ever witnessed one that was red. I did notice one other thing: early in its path, it had a slight “wiggle” - that is to say, it’s trajectory was not completely straight. It deviated just slightly, then continued along a straight path.
