Observer
NameJodi L
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI have a picture of the fireball. I have tried several times to submit my sighting to your site but the send button just swirls like it is trying to process. Details of siting include: I was leaving the grocery store when I found the moon to be very beautiful tonight. As I went to take a picture of the moon that's when I saw the fireball. After witnessing the event I looked at the picture I had taken and to my surprise I had captured the fireball with my moon picture.
