Reports Report 4310cf (Event 4310-2017)

Name Billy H
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I was driving West on IH 40 and a bright light off my left shoulder made me turn to look. It was a very bright meteor looking sight. Brighter than anything I’ve ever seen in the night sky. It was mostly purple and ended in a single extremely bright flash. I enjoy getting out for meteor showers but this was like nothing I’ve seen in a normal shower. Thanks.
