This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2023-2013
Observer
NameGregory M
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was a little confused by the first question about the direction I was facing. I put the direction I was facing when I first noticed something before I turned to look and see what it was. I'm not 100% on the time of night, but I took the dogs out around 7 and it was just before the end of my walk. It was cloudy and I believe the potential fireball came out from behind one cloud then passed behind another. I do not believe I saw the end of it's trajectory.
