Observer
NameConnie M
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was driving home from basketball games from DePere, WI to Marinette County. They fireball came out of the sky from the West of the road, seems like it disappeared in a poof about 15 to 20 feet in the air it may have been higher, it went so fast, it was dark, no other cars, it seemed like it was just above the East side of the road on the edge of the meridian. At first I thought it was a misfired firework, but then it was like a fireball with a tail at first from the West, then it got to a point like a sparkler or breaking apart and in an instant it disappeared it didn’t hit the ground it was up that 20 feet or so?
