Reports Report 620e (Event 620-2013)

Name John W
Experience Level 4/5
Remarks It reminded me of the Peekskill fireball, without fragmentation. I am also the Astronomy teacher at River Ridge H.S. in Woodstock, GA, and I show examples of fireballs in my class. We also studied the Feb. 15th Russian meteor. Since I didn't hear any sonic boom, I was guessing that it was a good distance away. I was only facing that direction for a short period of time (I just made a U-turn, but I saw it pretty much immediately).
