Reports Report 3611v (Event 3611-2014)

Name Joe M
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I have seen many shooting stars, and this was nothing like those. It appeared much closer, larger, and brighter. At first I thought it was a missile or fireworks, but it's trajectory was straight, not curved. It was unlike anything I have ever seen before. I expected to see a flash when it hit, but I could not from my location in my car.
