Reports Report 1211m (Event 1211-2017)

Name Brandon S
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks Never seen anything like this in my life even after witnessing numerous meteor showers. A friend also observed it as we sat outside at a back yard bonfire in Tampa, FL. She also saw a much smaller fireball, perhaps a large shooting star about 5 mins later, however i did not see this one. I was looking somewhat down when I noticed the entire lawn light up as bright as a strobe light. Please keep me updated about this fireball as the checkbox to do so is not working. Thanks
