Reports Report 1298eh (Event 1298-2017)

Name Alissa K
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I noted this was very very close to the highway- I was driving southbound and here, the highway is on a decline probably about 4-6%grade and the meteor was on my east side into the hills that butt up against highway between Glendale and La Cañada. Very close! But couldn't see where or how it terminated bc of the hill. The guy in car next to me nearly drove off onto the guard rail. I dictated a note at 9pm so estimate i saw it just before 9.
