Observer
NameJolynne B
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was the largest fireball I have ever seen. I can't accurately describe the size unfortunately. And it seemed very close. I would say it was the size of a large mountain boulder. It was not a bright fireball in the sense that it seemed to have a dark core surrounded by light with spark flying off of it. I lost sight of it when it went lower on the horizon than the rooflines of the houses in the neighborhood. I believe that it landed quite close to where I am located and I would be extremely interested in being involved in locating it. It was in the sky long enough for me to drive an average of two city blocks at about 35km\h so my time in seconds may be off.Please contact me if there seems to be a possibility that this is an object that can be realistically located. There is still snow on the ground in this area which may assist in finding it. Thank youJolynne
