Reports Report 4829h (Event 4829-2017)

Name Coral M
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks It didn't last very long. I was heading east and happened to look up in the sky and saw a flaming ball with what looked like a tail streak out like a shooting star only it was much bigger, then disintegrate as it dropped lower in the sky. I saw the Perseoid shower and this was definitely more than a shooting star!
