Reports Report 1684b (Event 1684-2017)

Name C S
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks What I saw seemed very close. I am always out running at 0400 and therefore see lots of meteors and meteor showers. This was quite different with an orange ball and for a brief second I wondered if it was going to crash on earth.
