This report has been linked to the following event: Event 4002-2021
Observer
NameKaren T
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was dusk. I have never seen anything so bright when it was still fairly light outside and in the city. Long, long tail. If you can calculate altitude of planes going in to land at DFW, the fireball appeared to start about the same angle or a little higher and almost went straight down to horizon rather than arching across the sky.
