Observer
NameBrenda R
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI saw something fall from the sky while driving home. I don’t know if it was a fireball as I’ve never seen one, but this was bright white and ball-ish in its appearance. Only lasted seconds. I called my mom and told her about it and asked her to let me know if she heard anything on the news - I figured I can’t be the only one who saw it. I’m curious to know what it was - it looked similar to what I would think a falling star would look like, but bigger.
