Observer
NameAndrew T
Experience Level3/5
RemarksWas driving west on route 9. The “fireball” seemed to be falling straight down onto the town of Northampton from my perspective. It seemed low in the atmosphere. It had prominent green flame and trail in front, around the sides, and flowed toward its rear. There was no trail noticeable after. The object looked round.
