Reports Report 4015b (Event 4015-2017)

Name Denise L
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks It streaked in front of the moon in a clear sky and was much brighter. I could clearly see orange/red at the tail end. A little like cigarette the wrong way round. I have never seen a meteor that appeared so close and clear. It was quite close to the horizon when it went out, I wonder if it could have landed. I couldn't hear anything but the sound of the sea in the cove was loud.
