Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt looked like a big rock with rolling orange and red fire with a trail of smoke rolling across the sky falling from high north west towards the south west. We could see it fall just into the city lights over Paragould Arkansas. Three others saw it. We thought it was a falling star or a small airplane crashing. Police had no reports of a plane crash.
