Experience Level3/5
RemarksI've never seen anything besides a major celestial body like our moon and sun look so big in the sky. The fireball was big enough to stand out in the corner of my vision, and although it was fleeting, the streak was there just long enough to still be there as it petered out. Literally anyone in the intersection should have a story to tell about it. It was almost scary. If I saw something like it again headed towards the horizon I'd almost expect a weapon, or to hear about the eventual collision in the news the next day (assuming it wasn't just continuing like normal through the sky and only *appearing* to lower in altitude). While tiny in the sky (because the sky is huge) it was big enough as a "mark" on the "canvas" that it seemed like you could see an edge. Reminded me of a shuttle launch, because it had a thin flame kind of vibe to the shape. Much bigger in my field of vision than any star or planet.
