This report has been linked to the following event: Event 3520-2020
Observer
NameRyan C
Experience Level2/5
RemarksMy initial assumption was space junk, but after looking at the other reports today I realized this incident didn't seem to occur as far south as the reports from Texas, so I decided to report it. It was witnesses by myself and three other adults with similar stargazing experience. All of us agreed it was the best of any fireball, meteor, or re-entry any of us had ever seen.
