Observer
NameHeath D
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was a partly cloudy night so I wasn’t able to see the full extent of whatever I saw. I was walking my dogs and the bright light caught my eye which I thought was the moon I was finally seeing through the clouds. When I looked up that’s when I saw it shooting across the sky. Biggest, brightest “meteor” I have ever seen. I see quite a few shooting stars when I take my dogs out as I live in a very rural area but I have never seen anything as big and bright as this shoot across the sky! It was beautiful and I would love to know what it was!
