Reports Report 4159a (Event 4159-2017)

Name Sidharth R
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks This was the best, brightest and the longest duration I have seen. I may have seen a couple of shooting stars before but that was a blink and you miss it. This one I had time to point out to my wife and friend and we were awestruck. Lasted for maybe 5 seconds or something and felt like it traveled parallel to the ground. I could see 2 spots of light which I thought was strange (my wife recalls 1)... It was fast and had a smoke trail. Amazing experience; Just lucky!
