Observer
NameDenise W
Experience Level2/5
RemarksAt the time of the viewing, I was driving, and saw the fireball above the tree line. It disappeared behind the trees as I passed, but I felt convinced at the time that it would hit the ground, it looked relatively close and seemed to be going straight down. I could not see if it would hit the ground from my vantage though.
