Observer
NameLucy B
Experience Level2/5
RemarksMy partner also saw it! I’ve watched quite a few meteor showers over the years, this meteor/whatever it was, was very different - seemed to fall down rather than travel across. The Sky was not properly dark. The tail was shorter and seemed to break up/fragment rather than the smooth continuous tails I have seen before.
