Reports Report 4908c (Event 4908-2017)

Name Cate M
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks The highway was very brightly lit, but this fireball was so visible, bright, and huge that it was unmistakably hurtling from the sky. I have never seen one this big, bright or close to the earth... I go to the beach every year to observe the Perseids.
