Reports Report 638e (Event 638-2015)

Name Mark M
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks I'm 58 years old, and I have never before seen any burning meteor so large, moving so slowly, so bright, or losing so much visible material. This at least 50 times larger (and similarly long lasting) compared with anything I have seen previously. Awesome.
