Reports Report 4894bn (Event 4894-2017)

Name Gabriela M
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks in a picosecond I first thought it’s a shooting star, then when it exploded I thought its a firework, then OMG its a meteor. It seemed so close to the ground, and because I was driving on the highway in front of the airport I even thought an airplane exploded, and then I wondered if it was a missile. It was amazing to see it, I was then wondering if maybe pieces of the meteor would fall on top of the highway.
