Experience Level2/5
RemarksWe were driving on the Palisades PKWY south and the fireball caught our eyes as it flashed by to the right, going east to west of us then disappeared behind the wall of trees. It was amazing and exciting, but didn't really know what we saw until I googled it. Im not completely sure of the time as we were driving for 7 hours from pittsburgh, so the time is approximate.
