Observer
NameSamantha F
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI SAW THE FIREBALL AT MY HOUSE - ADDRESS PROVIDED - AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS A FIREWORK BECAUSE IT WAS SO BRIGHT AND SEEMED CLOSE TO THE GROUND. I WAS LAYING ON MY COUCH AND IT CAUGHT MY EYE OUT THE PATIO SLIDING DOORS AND I WATCHED IT. I HAD NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT BEFORE. THE WEBSITE WOULD NOT PULL UP MY ADDRESS AND IT WOULD NOT PULL UP THE \"SEARCH MAP\" WHEN I CLICKED THE BUTTON. I SAW IT FOR APPROXIMATELY 5-7 SECONDS. BEFORE I COULD NO LONGER SEE IT IT TURNED RED THEN DARKNESS.
