This report has been linked to the following event: Event 8036-2020
Observer
NameErin B
Experience Level4/5
RemarksFireball had bright flaming tail and changed directions during its descent. We had thin, wispy cloud cover, and it seemed to disappear behind that rather suddenly, without any explosion, and too high to have crashed into the hills ahead. There was no noticeable sound, though I was driving (without music), so the road noise would have muffled it somewhat if there had been any. It was visible for about 90 seconds from the time I noticed it until I lost sight of it (in the video I was speaking to my son in the backseat).
