Observer
NameRick A
Experience Level2/5
RemarksSuddenly came into my line of vision from my kitchen window. It wasn't quite dark yet and this fireball showed up very clearly against the sky at dusk...enough that it caught my attention through the window halfway across the room. It was green, clear and bright. It was basically intact when it went behind the tree line but a lot of fragmentation had come off of it as it went across my line of vision. It was coming in at a pretty steep angle.
