Observer
NameKenneth R
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was walking north on my street on a very clear night and saw the fireball in the northern sky for about 5 seconds, shooting downward to the right of north; bright orangish yellow tail. Amazingly I saw another one two weeks later and reported that separately. I don't recall ever seeing one as bright as these in my life. (I am a professional ornithologist and very observant).
