Reports Report 5450kf (Event 5450-2017)

Name Gerald B
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks Seen from car going 60mph. It appeared as a shooting star and looked like it came straight down from the sky, very close to the horizon. I am not sure of the exact time, but it was between 5:00 and 6:00. The central ball of light was large and distinct, definitely like a meteor in the sky, but I only saw this as it appeared to fall to earth in the north sky.
