Observer
NameLaura C
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI observed this fireball right before 6pm as I was driving north on Route 125/Gonic Road in Rochester, NH. I first saw it out of my driver-side window and it quickly crossed Route 125 in between my car and the car in front of me (approximately 100 feet between our cars). The location was just past the Rochester Country Club. It appeared the "fire" just went out while still in the air right before the right-leaning curve on Route 125 between the Country Club and Oak St/125 intersection.
