RemarksFormer naval aviator. Saw a fireball. 2/15/20 at 1:05AM. It was very (white) bright and moved pretty much vertically from sky to horizon. I did not see the beginning or end due to the upper portion of the window, and then the house across the street. Just wanted to report it. Hope this helps. Thank you!
