Reports Report 2495n (Event 2495-2017)

Name Moria S
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks The location I used is an approximate. I was travelling southbound on I-5 at approximately 65 mph. I'm not from the area so I'm not sure where I was. I was somewhere in between Azalea and Wolf Creek, Oregon. There was one other person in the car with me who also saw the meteor (so one more person to add to the count of observers).
