Observer
NameChristopher D
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI viewed the fireball through a skylight directly over my bed. I first noticed the ring shaped orange fireball when it was over head and watched it move East until it went out of view through the skylight. It was the diameter of my pinky finger nail at arms length. The object was moving relatively slow enough that I considered leaping from bed and getting another view from a balcony off the bedroom. That would have meant trampling my sleeping wife so I decided otherwise.
