Observer
NameTracy H
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI don’t know for sure if it was fireball, but it was bright even with city light pollution. About as bright as Jupiter and lower in the sky than Jupiter. Straight across the sky about 3 seconds. I’ve never seen a streak as long on a shooting star before. I saw a short one earlier much higher in the sky and farther north that this long one. The short one wasn’t as bright. The streak was mostly white, but the front had a blue tint. I didn’t see it explode, but it did look kind of round at the front where it ended. I don’t know the exact time. It could have been earlier.
