Experience Level4/5
RemarksI was driving west on National Ave when I saw a bright flash to the north. I looked north and saw the fireball moving to the west approximately parallel to the road. It seemed to have a tail. It was white with green. It had a distinct head. I did not see it fall below the horizon as trees blocked the last second or two of viewing.
