Reports Report 614an (Event 614-2017)

Name Robert J
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I am a tourist and therefore not really good at the specific directions. But we were strolling along in the area around Prince Street when my eye caught what I first considered a shooting star. But I am familiar with those. This was definitely bigger and brighter. A very short and fast observation and not a plane or helicopter since it had a curved direction and I am familiar with those as well. So my best guess is that it might a meteor since it was bright enough to carch my eye. All my best and I hope I provided useful information.
