Name Tammy V
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I've seen shooting stars etc, this was quite big and bright. It moved fast and looked like a ball of fire. It looked like it flashed the closer it got to ground level almost like it exploded then hit the lower part of the mountain. I was in my vehicle so didn't hear any sounds.
