Experience Level2/5
RemarksWow. And, it glowed brighter just before it appeared to fizzle out. I considered the possibility of it being the decline of a close flare, but it was bright blue (rather than orange)and had no tail as you would usually see with a distress flare. Please note: The marker I placed on the map with this questionnaire is where I saw the possible fireball, not where I was located. (I was located in the northwest side of 1090 Dry Run Road, southeast most corner of Allegheny Portage Railroad NHS.)
