Observer
NameLauren W
Experience Level2/5
RemarksMy husband and I were sitting out in the evening on the patio with a clear view south of our property. All of the sudden I saw a bright yellow ball fall from the sky. It appeared midway from the sky and fell all the way to the ground. I have seen shooting stars many times, as well as meteor showers. They were always white in color. Never have I seen a yellow ball falling from the sky. I looked up thinking there might be a passing plane or something to explain the phenomenon. There was nothing. No retort or explosion sound, it was completely silent. I was stunned. I have never seen anything like this in my life.
