Reports Report 6425ff (Event 6425-2020)

Name Hope Z
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks Earlier, my husband and I were using an astronomy app because the sky was clear and I could see Jupiter with my naked eye. That was in the opposite direction of the fireball or whatever it was I just saw. When it showed up from behind my neighbors trees, I wasn’t really sure what I was observing, but realized it looked like a huge shooting star. I interrupted my husband’s conversation and made him turn around, and he saw it right before it went behind out other neighbor’s house. It reminded me of the color and brightness of LED lights. Feel like I witnessed something amazing or really unbelievable.
