NamePatricia P
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was travelling in a car on the expressway with many bright streetlights. The fireball was very bright to see above the well lit expressway. At first I thought it to be a plane going down . Car breaks went on in front of me as I believe these other drivers saw what I was seeing . The fireball was very prominent in the sky.
