This report has been linked to the following event: Event 51-2017
Observer
NameDan H
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI had just backed out of my driveway in my vehicle to leave for work and proceeded to drive south as the fireball caught my eye to my east. Seeing this caused me to stop my vehicle and watch because I have never seen a fireball in the sky. I have only witnessed shooting stars and this was nothing like that at all. The temperature was roughly 4 degrees outside so my windows were up and heater on preventing me to hear anything outside. As it traveled in a southerly direction in the sky, I lost sight of it due to the trees and rooftops in my neighborhood. It was incredible to see.
