Observer
NameHerbert P
Experience Level3/5
RemarksMy field of view was limited due to trees. I was inside the house with tv on so no sound noticed. I first thought it was a burning aircraft as it was slower than others I’ve seen. Over 22 years Driving 45 minutes to home after working night shift has allowed me to see 3 other fireballs. None were this large or with colors.
