Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was watching the SpaceX Crew-3 astronaut rocket launch from Cape Canaveral and as the rocket gained altitude and further away from my position, I saw this meteor streak across the sky with a long tail. I thought it may have been a discarded stage of the rocket but found out later that it was a meteor.
