RemarksMy wife and I live on post oak Rd where we witnessed this amazing fireball. Normally at the time we witnessed it we would have been asleep. We just so happened to walk to the local convenience store at 1 a.m. and on our return home at 1:17 is when we witnessed the fall. My wife's name is Katherine Rosedahl (witness) who actually had her eyes to the sky before me and hit my arm just in time for me to see the final descent. It was amazing. Wish I had my phone recording .
