This report has been linked to the following event: Event 5814-2019
Observer
NameRick G
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was like nothing I had seen before. It was a large bright glowing ball of fire ( I literally described it as a fireball) with a long equally bright tail behind it. The fireball flashed right across my windshield from tight to left. It was much larger than a shooting star and appeared to be close. I am 100% certain of what I saw. So certain that I looked at my dash to make sure of direction. I was headed east. I kept looking for news reports as there was no way only I would have seen it. Whatever it was it was awe inspiring.
