Observer
NameNicola S
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI watch the meteor showers in August But this was different. It was low to the horizon and formed a deep arc, almost as if the ball of white light was really heavy. It had quite a long trail and it faded away. It was really clear and very bright and quite slow.
