Reports Report 3837fy (Event 3837-2017)

Name Joseph P
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I was driving when it was observed, so it wasn't possible to hear anything. I had just picked my daughter up off the bus at 2:57, heading South, but looking around as I often do. Happened to be looking east/southeast. Saw the meteor move just above the tree line horizontally. Very bright with a tail. My father passed away exactly 34 hours prior to this event. It was the first time I was with my daughter since it happened. I consider it a sign.
