Observer
NameHaley H
Experience Level1/5
RemarksMy friend who was driving 15-20 miles ahead of me going north on I-65 also saw something very bright land on the ground not too far from the highway. I was 15-20 miles behind him and did not see this. From my perspective, the fireball burnt out before it reached the horizon. But I called him immediately after seeing it and he said it landed not far from him.
