OpmerkingenI'm really glad you have this site. It felt like such a momentous thing to see (and I've seen a number of shooting stars, Northern Lights, and even meteor showers). This was huge, bright, long and amazing. I actually shouted out loud it was so remarkable. Like a caveman marveling at the mysterious sky :)

Opmerkingenorange red, at first sort of straight out but arcing as the bright core descended. I think the trail lingered after the core disappeared, but not certain.
Eind lichtflits
WaarnemingYes
OpmerkingenIt came in low, big and fast. Right away the parts of it were clearly visible: a bright intense core, a kind of halo or penumbra of paler light, and the orange/red tail. I shot forward towards the headlands, and I was surprised at how big it was and how long it was visible. As it arced downward the core flashed, the halo was gone, and it was like a cone of dust/particles was visible at the nose or front of the fireball. Then it was gone. and I think the tail lingered a second or two longer. It was strange how visible and clear it was. I thought I should hear it or see it splash into the water.
