Reports Report 100e (Event 100-2019)

Name David B
Experience Level 4/5
Remarks This was the largest and brightest meteor I have ever seen. The sky was fairly overcast. This was a slow moving meteor that appeared as a glowing ball much larger than the streak. The streak was not persistent. The meteor appeared low (visible through the mist/clouds. I don't know if the glowing ball effect was due to the clouds or indicative of the size. The meteor's light switched off instantly. My friend and I were watching TV and this meteor instantly caught our attention as it shot across the sky.
