Observer
NameJennifer A
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was stunning. My husband teaches science, and uses a telescope, and he was also dazzled by it. Unlike anything we have ever seen. We expected something to crash and shake the ground. At first we thought it must be a plane crashing. Brilliant light and flame, and it traveled almost straight down out of the sky and below the horizon. We were in a rural area so the only lights were our headlights. The constellations were crystal clear in a deep black sky. If you can send us an official report/e-mail it to me so Tom can share it with his middle school students!! Thanks, Jennifer
