Observer
NameDALE C
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThe fireball was very bright and seemed extraordinarily low. It almost looked like a shot from a Roman candle but this came from over my in laws house, but the trajectory definitely did not appear to be shot from the ground, plus there is nowhere near the area we were standing where someone would have launched anything. No sound at all.
