Reports Report 850s (Event 850-2017)

Name Paul E
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I saw it going towards the ground for about 6 seconds and watched it burn out approximately 350 ft above the ground. From when I saw it the size looked like a street light with a fairly long tail behind it. The meteor and tail burned out at the same time close to the ground. Unbelievable sight for me and my friend Ralph
