Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was driving north on 741, saw something flash out of the corner of my eye to the west, and then witnessed a huge fireball, almost moon sized in brilliance, come down fast toward the ground to the west. It flickered as it fell and left a noticeable trail behind it. It was below the cloud deck (overcast) and I also noticed the shadow of a solid looking object against the background sky after it flickered out.
