NameSharon A
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI want you all to email me any questions that I may not have been clear about. I want y’all to have the most precise information about this fireball. When I first saw the fireball, my thought was an airplane crashing. The fireball lasted ever how many seconds it took for me to exclaim 4 phrases, “oh my god, oh my god, nooooooo, what is that!” I was facing like, directly East it was SO bright, I knew it wasn’t just a regular meteor. It was a wonderful heavenly feeling inside, because I had witnessed this. I have a visual memory and this experience will forever be something I will share with my grandchildren.
