Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was AMAZING!!! I'm 63 y.o. and I have never seen anything like that in my life!! It lasted only a couple seconds after catching my eye (don't know how long it might've been moving before it caught my eye, I don't think it was long), but I knew immediately what it was. Thus, the reason i'm reporting it. I've seen videos of other 'fireballs', but this was absolutely The First I've seen in person, as it happened! That was sooo exciting!! (Likely a once-in-a-lifetime event for me, like seeing the Big American Eclipse a couple years ago in central Oregon (outside the Painted Hills) with my son. It was that good for me! Never knew if i'd ever see a fireball / meteorite / explosion like that in my lifetime, but … voila! there it was!)
