Reports Report 3956j (Event 3956-2017)

Name Tina M
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks This was unlike any meteor shower I've ever witnessed. Other showers were tiny and seemed so far away; this was extremely bright and seemingly large. I almost feared it would start a fire or cause an explosion where it "landed."
