Reports Report 5202j (Event 5202-2016)

Name Benjamin F
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks This fireball was amazing. I am slightly concerned about the MASSIVE increase in fireball activity in my area. Not just my area, but the whole world. I was sitting outside a few days before I witnessed this fireball, and I witnessed another fireball accompanied with 3 bright meteors. That was the morning of December 14, the peek of a very strong meteor shower. I saw 16 meteors that night/morning.
