Observer
NameCarissa A
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was sitting in my car with my teenage daughter and we both saw a huge bright object streaming across the sky. We both asked if the other saw it because it was so shocking and out of the ordinary. It went behind some trees and then came out on the other side. It was faster and much brighter than any planes that ever fly by. Definitely not a plane. I looked for more after that but didn’t see signs of anything else before driving away. It was so cool that I searched the internet to see if anything was happening in the sky tonight that could explain what we saw. I couldn’t find much, but when this came up in my search, I thought it could definitely have been a fireball. Though I really have no clue. It would be neat if it was.
