Reports Report 3582c (Event 3582-2017)

Name Laurie W
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks The fireball had a very bright ball with a red rim and a very long white tail. It seemed to just disappear above the horizon after streaking quickly northeast to southwest. We were driving and saw it clearly through the front windshield. It was brilliant and ended too soon to grab a camera.
