Observer
NameJoseph N
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThe fireball definitely hit the ground within 0.25 to 2miles of where I saw it. It came down fast and steep angle and had a large streak of fire similar to a professional firework but never saw anything like it. If I had to guess it was the size of a softball to basketball. I drove around the neighborhood and saw no signs of it...
