Reports Report 53b (Event 53-2017)

Name Jennifer B
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks My son and I were driving and it only lasted a couple of seconds. It looked as big as my fist in the sky. There was a tail of flames from the meteor. The meteor looked like it was on fire. We didn't hear any sounds because we were in the car.
