Reports Report 3345az (Event 3345-2017)

Name andrew k
Experience Level 4/5
Remarks This object came down almost vertically, look like a shooting star but much thicker and slower-moving, it turned green at the head as it got closer to the Earth, I waited for sound or something else that could have indicated man-made but nothing. I had just spent the prior two days at Cherry Springs dark sky Park so I know shooting stars very well , this was definitely a meteorite coming straight down
