Observer
NameRhonda M
Experience Level3/5
RemarksMy son was in the car with me and we both immediately saw it and pointed. It is the biggest, brightest thing I have ever seen in the night time sky. Definitely way bigger than any shooting star or anything we have ever witnessed in a meteor shower. It was a big ball of fire shooting downward with a fiery tail behind it. I have never seen anything like it.
