NameJagath K
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThe fireball seemed very close to me 500-1000 ft above my head. It appeared over the woods across the road about 40 yards from where I stood and disappeared over my house that was about 30 yards from where I was standing. I do not recall any sounds while it was streaking over my head nor after the fire died. I have woods in the back of the house and beyond that a an open grassy (Cricket) field.
