Observer
NameTerry A
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI've observed meteor showers along the west coast of Michigan in the dark. This was observed while driving in the suburbs with street lights/head lights. This was much brighter, obvious in the night sky. It's intensity would be similar to the front lights on airliners coming towards the airport when they are turning into their landing pattern. Compared to other meteors I've seen, this crossed its section of the sky with larger arc length.
