Reports Report 2248m (Event 2248-2017)

Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I was traveling west down Interstate 64 and had been frequently looking south for the Milky Way given that Daniel Boone National Forest is a very dark area of the state. In between southern glances i caught the green fireball out of the corner of my eye coming from a height and angle that would be impossible for fireworks. The current meteor showers I am seeing cross the Milky Way core area from high(SE) to low(SW) is roughly the same angle/trajectory, but not as fast across the sky.
