Name Bryan W
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks I was driving when I saw it. It was so big and bright I almost thought it was fireworks, but I knew it was meteor because it appeared out of nowhere and just looked like any other "shooting star" when it first appeared but then it got larger and larger , bright green with a long green tail.
