Reports Report 4310de (Event 4310-2017)

Name Russ O
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks The flash was rather faint. It was low on the horizon and it appeared to be very far away from my location. I caught just a quick glimpse of it because I wasn't expecting to see it. At first, I wasn't positive that I saw a meteor. Then, later the same night (tonight), I saw an article on the Internet about a large meteor sighting in Arizona. It was then that I realized that I indeed saw a meteor.
