This report has been linked to the following event: Event 168-2018
Observer
NameMargaret L
Experience Level2/5
RemarksImportant to note I did not see the actual fireball but only the bright light blue flash of light, and heard or sensed the short thumping boom afterward. I glimpsed this through a partially shaded window in the next room. Unfortunately all the thick shades in the room where we were sitting were pulled down so we did not realize the extent of the flash at the time.I am sending this report just to help confirm the overall area where this event was visible. It looks like we are about 70 miles or so from the largest cluster of sightings.I wish I had seen the complete thing but it is very exciting anyway!
