OpmerkingenI try to get out for any meteor showers i can if weather is good, average of 2-4 per year. Wouldn't call myself an amateur astronomer but I have a telescope that I do use somewhat regularly. I'm always looking up for cool meteorites when I go out fishing at night, 1-3 nights a week, have seen quite a few. This one was by far the most incredible as far as size, duration, color, brightness and it is the first time I've ever heard any sound as a result of a meteor breaking up or just seeing one in general
