Name nate S
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I was a passenger in a car. The "shooting star" came into view from the top of windshield, travelling what seemed the same direction as my vehicle, when I first saw it. then travel until my view was obstructed from trees/buildings etc. I did not witness a terminal flash but am certain the object was viewable well before it fly over our heads. Easily viewable with clear skies at the time and bright against dark sky
