Reports Report 3151b (Event 3151-2013)

Name Kirsten H
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks The streak across the sky was so low, I would have been afraid of getting hit if I'd been closer. It was only two houses away from me, and barely cleared the tree line. It disappeared above a greenbelt. I'm going to hunt for remnants today. It was like a huge bonfire, streaking quickly across the sky. It was so amazing and disappeared so quickly, it was almost hard to believe I saw it!
