Reports Report 850v (Event 850-2017)

Name Beth O
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I have experienced quite a few meteor showers (mostly Perseids and Geminids) and have observed some very nice meteors. But this fireball was the best I've ever seen. Slow moving, brite white and green with a brite, vivid trail. ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE!!
