Reports Report 5311v (Event 5311-2017)

This report has been linked to the following event: Event 5311-2017
Observer
NameNathan K
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI just saw a video of a fireball on a national news program weeks ago. I'd never heard of the phenomenon. What I saw in person was almost dead on to the video. Unfortunately I was in my car but the experience was definitely real. It happened so fast. The amount that it lit up the sky was just crazy. And as mentioned earlier it was a cloudy night, and although I had my radio on I didn't hear or feel any sort of boom.
