Reports Report 454hq (Event 454-2017)

Name Nicole R
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks My daughter and I were traveling by car headed north on 7 hwy just before the I-70W exit, we both pointed and said"Do you see that?" "A falling star maybe?" " No, it's bigger than that, maybe a meteor". It was very bright and big. If I only see this once in my lifetime I'm glad I was with my daughter and we experienced such a magnificent wonder together. I'm curious how many other people will report it.
