Observer
Name Andrew O
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I have NEVER seen such a huge and bright brush with the atmosphere...It was large and sustained until it burned out and disappeared near the horizon. This was NO ordinary meteorite...I grew up in Bermuda and have seen countless meteorites...this was vastly larger and much more spectacular..In fact, I was concerned the earth might have a large hit...It was truly spectacular..and a once in a lifetime experience for me...I am 63...so seen plenty!
