Reports Report 614as (Event 614-2017)

Name Claudia S
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks In my layperson's terms: I saw an extremely bright fireball (and am very excited about it!) I was walking on W.96th Street near Broadway in Manhattan, and saw it straight ahead of me between the highrises along 96th street, towards New Jersey. It was thoroughly surreal!
