Reports Report 1012dl (Event 1012-2017)

Name Misa S
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I was driving at the time on I-5-south and saw the fireball out my side window, but couldn't stare at it because I was driving. It was the biggest meteor I've ever personally seen (assuming it was a meteor). Very beautiful. I wish I hadn't been driving, but if I hadn't been out driving, I wouldn't have seen it at all!
