Observer
NamePaul
Experience Level4/5
RemarksWe were stiiting in the living room watching TV when I saw the fireball stream across the sky, apparently from the south to the north, It lasted long enough for me to note it, remark to my wife to look at it (I initially thought it was New Years Eve fireworks - man made), and then jump up to go outside to see it dissapear to the north east. The head was a greenish blue and was quite large. Best fireworks on New Years Eve, from nature.
