Experience Level2/5
RemarksI used my compass on my smartphone, and took a picture of what i presumed the last position of the fireball. I was standing at, 31*29'8" N, 84*31'51" W. It was at 51*NE, at the time I lost it in the tree line. Time was approximately 00:29, on November 19th, 2016. I was looking at a friend outside of his house, and saw the most magnificent, heavenly event, that I have ever experienced. It was a bright green color, and it was as round as the wide, gassy, cloudy, quick evaporating tail. its tail was maybe 15 times as long as the ball. My friends didn't see it, but as soon as i saw it leave the horizon, dogs in the area began to bark. Unlike I assume the canines did, I didn't hear any sounds created by the ball. When I arrived home, I did some research to try and comprehend what I had saw, and your website explained it to a "T". Thank you for allowing me to share this amazing experience, it was truly remarkable. Matthew
