Reports Report 6425qj (Event 6425-2020)

Name Christopher D
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks my daughter Deni also saw it....brightest shooting star I have ever seen. I question if it was the same one reported in New York and Connecticut because it seemed so close. Flew over the garden State Parkway heading west. We lost sight because of the trees which also makes me think it was low and close.
