Observer
NameAndrew D
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was much larger than any shooting star I’ve ever seen. I didn’t go outside with the intention of observing anything, I was smoking a cigarette on my front porch with my father who also witnessed it. It lit up the sky facing south east from my address. My father described it as a giant sparkler shooting across the sky. He saw mostly bright white but I saw green in its trail as well.
