Remarks It was very wide unlike the regular falling stars I have seen before. If a plain shooting star was an inch wide this one was close to a foot wide. (Obviously not really but it's the best way to explain how much wider it was compared to a more common falling star) it was not like a big to little tail more like wide to wider. Maybe an oval/rectangle mix.
