Reports Report 1770g (Event 1770-2018)

Name Ashley P
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I've seen (and had my reports published here) two shooting stars in the past, but this was definitely different. MUCH brighter, bigger, and lasted longer than with previous observations. I feel fairly confident that it was a meteorite.
