Reports Report 5538qm (Event 5538-2017)

Name Mike D
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks I was on the second floor of my house taking a picture of the bright moon, the meteorite was just above my neighbors roofline the whole time but because of this my description of viewing angle may be off. At street level I feel it would have looked further up against the horizon.
