Observer
NameAmanda F
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI've seen one other fireball a few years ago in NC. It was dark orange and smaller and traveled across the sky straight above. This one was much bigger, mostly blue and was dropping almost straight down, a little too the north from where I was sitting. I was expecting it to end with a crash.
