Reports Report 3978e (Event 3978-2017)

Name Brian L
Experience Level 4/5
Remarks I go out and watch the ISS pass overhead, so I know it wasn't this. I also live close to a small airport, and I know it wasn't a plane. This meteor lasted longer and was more visible than the very quick shooting star meteors I have seen. White with red tail (very small tail)
