Experience Level2/5
RemarksI happened to look out my window at night and see this meteor. I thought to myself, oh cool a shooting star! But I have seen shooting stars before and they didn't look like this. I wondered if it was something falling from the sky on fire like fragmentation from a plane crash or a drone or something. Then I realized it must be a meteor. Pretty cool that I happened to be looking out the window at the right time!
