Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was looking for the space station which was due to be overhead at 11:35 and I saw the fireball. The dark red band of flames took up most of the sky. It was so fast that my partner missed it by a split second and I jumped back and got a big shock. The space station came into view just a minute or so after and looked tiny in comparison. Then we saw a small shooting star to the far right as the space station passed and another to the top left. The sky was full of activity.
