Experience Level3/5
RemarksJust take in knowledge this was a meteor, was the biggest iv seen, but yet doesn't come near to what some fireballs I've seen on videos. Had all the characteristics of a fireball but was not a large one, still it was one. I was facing Between South and West, that is the direction I was facing. Meteor came straight down from Midway sky it appeared. Before it became its brightest before going out, it curved inward slowly, gracefully it got big bright and went out.
