This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2624-2018
Observer
NameTodd G
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI saw an enormous, and widely reported fireball a few years back in Phoenix which actually made a sound and caused me (ridiculously) to duck. Obviously it catches you unaware. I felt like I was in exactly the right place for that one. And this was similar but much smaller. StilI I feel fortunate to have witnessed them.
