Observer
NameNeal F
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThe fireball had a long tail and was directly in front of/just below the Milky Way, which is what we were looking at when the fireball appeared. My wife and friend saw it, too — we live in a town in the mountains with very dark skies, but this was the brightest and longest meteor we have ever seen!
