Observer
NameBec B
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI believe I saw a second fireball immediately after this one which was more to the sw but it disappeared before I got a good look at it. The first one that I saw, the one I'm reporting, came from the southeast and went toward the northwest. I saw it as it was straight up over my head as I was already looking upward. It appeared as a bright yellow ball larger than a full moon. I did not see any train until right before the end. The train of green sparkles appeared briefly and then the whole thing just vanished. Amazing experience!
