Observer
NameTeri W
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThis fireball was very big and bright and low on the horizon. It disappeared behind the Berryessa Hills. I expected to see a big explosion or fire or something. At first I thought maybe it was a plane on fire because it was daylight and I have never heard of seeing a fireball during the day. Wow is all I can say. It seemed so close.
