Observer
NameGreg E
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI've seen hundreds of meteors before but I've never seen anything like this. I actually thought it was some strange kind of firework or flare because it seemed to be close to the ground. it was slow moving and really big and bright. Definitely greenish, with a noticeable trail. It was so slow-moving (for a meteor) and bright, I actually thought to myself "Strangest -looking firework I've ever seen!". I just forgot about it and then I saw an article in the news this morning with a link to your website, so I thought I'd report it.
