Reports Report 3393h (Event 3393-2017)

Name Katie S
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I am an avid "star chaser" as my fiancé likes to say. I have most of the more active showers scheduled in my calendar with reminders to set an alarm at the optimal viewing times for each. I have witnessed hundreds of meteors, and have only personally seen one fireball (from my front door with the lights/tv on) previously to this one. What I saw, was almost the same BRIGHT green color as the first fireball I saw a few years ago, except this one, upon break-up, was orange (like the color of fire) as opposed to the yellow tail of the previous meteor. They are life-changing, that's for sure!
