This report has been linked to the following event: Event 4479-2020
Observer
NameRobert D
Experience Level1/5
RemarksIt was round, bright white, and had maybe a 10ft. tail following it. I was driving so I could not tell where it may have landed but it came from the left (south/east) angled downward to the north /west. It looked like a fireball but I too big to be fireworks. It could have landed in Lake Vermillion or somewhere in that area. But I went looking that way and didnt see anything---It was like a rainbow... Looks like it ends 2-blocks over, but the more you chase it. the farther it is away from you. I thought it was the most "strangest" but beautiful thing I've ever seen in my life.
