Reports Report 6425oj (Event 6425-2020)

Name Lisa E
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I first thought it was a large, bright meteorite, but it kept traveling and glowing. The trajectory was about 1:00 to 7:00 if imagining a clock face. We were headed south on the road. This is the second time I’ve observed a fireball, so I was pretty sure that it was a fireball. I was a passenger in a car when we saw it, and it may have gone on longer than 5 seconds but we didn’t stop to check because we were driving. It was beautiful!
