NameSarah D
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI have seen shooting stars, plenty of them over the years in the mountains. This was no shooting star. This was on fire and it lasted for almost 5 Seconds. It appeared directly in front of me and it entered my vision of field from the top left and it descended to the bottom right. I braced myself for impact I thought it was going to crash into the houses in front of me that's how close it looked. I can see lots of debris behind it almost like Sparks. He was very Orange in color. To say the least I was in complete awe and shock when I saw it. It was unlike anything I've ever seen. Moments after seeing the meteorite if you will I post it on social media if anyone else in the area had seen it and I didn't receive any replies. It did appear as if there was some sort of lights up in the sky to the left of the object which may have been a plane.

RemarksI could see what look like Sparks and fire trailing behind the object as it fell rapidly from the sky. It almost looked like Sparks that shoot off of a firework like a bottle rocket. It was so fast its hard to describe an kind of a trail. It appeared very close to me.
Terminal flash
RemarksIt looked like a rocket with sparks trailing behind it . There was a constant glow of orange and red and almost like a purple color. I thought maybe something was crashing out of the sky that was on fire!
