Reports Report 4430p (Event 4430-2017)

Name Doug B
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks It was amazing. Of course I have seen shooting starts before but this was so bright so large and I stopped my car for a few seconds and rolled down my window for I believed I would hear a crash. I was heading home from teaching (I am an Adjunct Prof. teach from 7 pm to 9:50 but class got out around 9:10 pm that night). Their was a guy walking and I rolled down my window and asked him if he saw it he said no. The meteor appeared to head towards the Conn. forest. Dudley is on the boarder of CT and my house facts CT. It was truly amazing.
