Observer
NameCharles N
Experience Level1/5
RemarksWhile working on the beach replenishment project in Ocean City NJ I observed what appeared to me to be a large fire ball dropping from the sky. It was very bright and I thought it could have been a close as Atlantic City where it landed. I wasn't really sure what is was and when I mentioned it the person I was talking to by the Tim he turned around it was gone.
