Observer
NameJay B
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was 12 mi exactly east of Lone Pine Peak at 4000' elevation. Fireball disappeared precisely behind exact top of Lone Pine Peak 13000 elevation, but no idea how far behind. I expect a meteor landed some where out there. Fireball has substantial angular size, 1/4 - 1/8 that of the sun.
