This report has been linked to the following event: Event 3191-2014
Observer
NameTina B
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThis fireball was so bright, it was not impaired at all by my being in the midst of all the city lights - it stood out markedly. Didn't see any explosion (like folks saw in the news video of the meteor that hit Siberia a year or so ago) - seemed more to just fizzle out like a regular falling star - The size of the fireball was at least about 3 times (possibly 4x) the size of the "boomer" type of 4th of July fireworks (the single white light ones that make the most noise). Saw my first one of these about 10 years ago out on a dark highway and have wanted to see one every since - what a blessing!
