OpmerkingenThis was not like recurring meteor showers where the objects are as bright as a star and very quick moving. This was *much* brighter and larger, and a little slower moving. It was a classic fireball like you can find in videos all over the web. It was by far the biggest I've seen in my 57 years. It was cool! :-D
