Name Teresa S
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I have only seen one or 2 meteors ("shooting stars") in my life and they were much smaller and faster, the size of stars and gone in a second. This one was much bigger, twice the size of Venus and lasted 2-3 seconds before dropping behind the building in front of me.
