Reports Report 4235he (Event 4235-2017)

Name Alyssa A
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I have seen a "shooting star" on a couple occasions before but nothing like this. This was absolutely huge and magnificent in the sky. I was driving on the highway and it appeared right straight ahead of me in the sky, not to be missed. It was bold and bright as it streamed in an almost straight downward direction hot blueish white with a long white-yellow trail. Seemed to stay bright and the trail seemed to last longer than anything else I have seen.
