RemarksI walked out of my sons room after putting him to bed and as usual take a moment to look at the stars directly south of our home. I stopped dead in my movement as I saw something I had never seen before. A fireball in the night sky. The fireball literally looked as though it had a flaming trail of reddish yellow to white. The front of the object you could see a hazy outline of a deep blueish green color. It was very bright and seemed to go directly downward in front of my view. There was a hill that it went behind so I only got a brief glimpse. I was quite shocked as I have seen many shooting stars and this looked nothing like that. The size was impressively large and a glow with what looked like fire trailing behind. It was so brief that if it hadn’t been such an impressive sight I would have been able to just pass it off as a typical shooting star. It was breathtaking and I wish I could have witnessed it for longer than our quick moment. I hope this account further helps the study of our solar system.
