Reports Report 5932an (Event 5932-2018)

Name Patrick T
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I missed the meteor earlier this month that left a visible trail seen all over the state. Seeing this meteor and it breaking up entering our atmosphere was I feel of more significant than spotting a visible trail. The dark sky over the ocean really helped me absorb the beauty. I was left in awe as I commuted to work.
