RemarksI was driving into work and all the sudden near the top of my field of view an object entered heading nearly straight down that appeared to be a firework. However, it was heading from top down and moving rapidly. As it descended it appeared brighter and easier to see. It only lasted maybe 2 seconds and burned out. I could then hear a slight boom in the distance afterwards, even though I had the radio on at normal volume, windows up and driving 70mph.
