Remarksthis fireball seemed so close to the ground it blew my mind. it also came on the eve of my sisters passing. is it possible it was a sign to me that the angels were on their way to her. This was a real shooting star i saw and i came to this web sight to see if there were other sightings and i see there were. I may be off on minutes as i did not have exact time. but i know it was after 8:04 pm EST and before 8:30pm EST.

Remarksat first i thought it was low lying plane but it was so fast and so bright and rather big it shot across my vision from left to right i believe from south east to north west. it looked like it hit the ground. it appeared white and yellow but more white light. my first shooting star! i was driving in car with windows up and did not notice sound
