Observer
NamePatricia M
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was shoveling the driveway when the light from the fireball lit up the sky so brightly that I thought that a car was coming down the road - until I realized that the light was far above my head. I was delighted to witness the fireball trail across the sky! I did not hear any accompanying noise.
