Reports Report 6173gf (Event 6173-2020)

Name Sean D
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I have seen at least a hundred “shooting stars” in my life. Usually they are very high in the sky and only last for about a second maybe two. This was 10 times brighter than anything I have ever seen and very low and was still burning when it passed below the horizon. It also lasted close to 5 seconds but I was driving so it could have been burning much longer than that but I didn’t see it until it passed below the front roof line of my car.
