This report has been linked to the following event: Event 4629-2016
Observer
NameJ M
Experience Level3/5
RemarksMy sense of direction stinks! I was driving on route 250 in front of the Staunton Public Library after leaving Gypsy Hill Park and saw the fireball/ meteor up ahead in the sky. It moved downward from my right to my left. The Mary Baldwin University campus is ahead in that general direction. I was fortunate enough to see a fireball over Stuanton on January 31, 2016. Last evening's fireball wasn't quite as spectacular but still awesome to witness.
