Observer
NameRosemary B
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI was traveling in a car when observing this fireball with a companion that verified all we recorded here at website. It appeared shockingly close and low. I also recorded I heard no sound, however I was in a car with the windows rolled up and would not really know if there was a sound. Near the end of the sighting is when the red color was observed. It was gorgeous to observe!
