Observer
NameHeidi D
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI have seen a fireball before, but this one appeared very large and close. I was in my car driving south when I saw it directly over me, so I'm not sure how long it was visible before it was in view of my windshield. I had my husband look up from his phone and he still had time to watch it disappear behind the trees. It was bright white at first and turned blue before it disappeared from our view.
