Observer
NameLouise B
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis was nothing like I’ve ever seen before. It was a definite orange glowing ball with a tail of flame about 5x the length of the ball. I’ve seen shooting stars in the UK and in Africa and other places, but this was very low in the sky. It felt like no more than 50-100m up. I caught sight of it above me and watched as it disappeared behind the tree line.
