Observer
Name John S
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks Exact location is an estimate we were driving on an unfamiliar road enroute to my sister’s home in NJ for thanksgiving. Biggest brightest thing I’ve ever seen. If it was a shooting star it was very close. Looked more like something burning up as it headed for the ground. Impressive
