Observer
NameEric H
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was walking my dog, I looked up at the exact right time to view the fireball. From my vantage point at the bottom of a hill, the fireball was well above the treeline. It began about 1/2 way up on the horizon, disappearing behind the treeline. Light green, light blue, toward the front, and orange at the tail end. It lasted long enough for me to be able to tell my dog something like "It's gonna hit." It never did. My second fireball in 5 yrs.
