Observer
NameJason M
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI have seen one other meteor in the past. That one was very fast but I could see what looked like welders slag coming off of the tail. The one I observed on 09/11/2020 was a flash in a straight line from my front yard heading southeast. It was gone in the blink of an eye, faster even. Easily the fastest moving object I have ever seen. Much faster than the one I had seen years before I describe at the beginning of the paragraph.
