Observer
NameRocco M
Experience Level1/5
RemarksBright fireball seen while driving, appeared to drop straight down from sky to land, without any apparent resistance slowing it, until obscured by low buildings. No sound heard, although any resulting sound may have been obscured by engine / car noise. Appeared in much the same way & general location as I imagine a returning SpaceX rocket would.
