Reports Report 2263a (Event 2263-2017)

Name Wendy C
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks It's the closest meteor (or the like) I have ever seen. It was huge in the sky. It lasted long enough for me to start jogging in its direction, with trees obstructing my view, following the end of it. I saw just the end after the trees cleared. I'm awe struck. Fiery indeed, bright yellow and orange.
