RemarksI just happened to be in the right place at the right time to see this fireball. I was surprised and amazed by the sight of it. I was with 3 other people in a vehicle when I happened to look up and see what looked like an incredibly bright meteor with a trail of sparks behind it.No one else in the vehicle saw it . It was so incredible & unlike anything I’ve ever seen.I looked online to see if there was any information regarding what it may have been.
