Observer
NameSusan L
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThe fireball was very close to the ground. I saw it as I was driving beginning on the N side of 28 as I was driving west, and it quickly went behind the trees on the south side. I lost sight of it after that. I am curious where it may have landed, as it was that close to the ground.
