Observer
NameJill P
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThe sky was clear and you could see stars easily. It was very dark, right before dawn showed any signs of starting. The fireball had a long tail and looked to be heading towards the ground. I actually looked for a point of impact as I drove past the area it seemed to be headed. It almost reminded me of what it would look like to see a missile being shot from a fighter plane. I half expected to see more shooting through the sky because of the way it looked. Very interesting experience.
