Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis was unbelievable. It appeared to be going at such a slow speed compared to when you see a shooting star in the sky. It was moving from west to east with a slow descent. The fireball itself was huge with a blue/green color and surrounded by white and reddish/orange. I would have loved to have gotten video but I was going over the US 27 bridge in Moore Haven and it would have been too risky. As the fireball decended, the flame went out but you could see a red dot then continue on it's way down to earth. It was going slow enough that you could have second guessed it to be a plane. Thankfully it wasn't. It was truly an amazing sight that I will never forget. Something like you would see out of a movie.
