This report has been linked to the following event: Event 7987-2020
Observer
NameSabrina S
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis was definitely more than a "shooting star" going through the sky, it was large with many different colors. The colors were so bright! So bright that they showed through the clouds. I was trying to look for the Saturn/Jupiter conjunction last night but there was an overcast, so we were out by the fire and I just happen to look up at the right time and saw this possible fireball. Very special.
