Reports Report 3490r (Event 3490-2017)

Name Tim D
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks The fireball was brilliant blue / green, and appeared as an extremely bright point overhead. It moved slowly at first, then quickly gained speed as it moved across the sky, lasting around 2 seconds. I was in a busy area, so I could not determine if there was any sound associated with the fireball.
