Observer
NameJamie L
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI've seen what most people call falling stars, even prolonged fireballs, but this was the first time I've seen a fireball so close and change color from yellow, orange, to bright red. It was amazing. I would fully expect that there is a debris field in my neighbors farm field or bush.
