Observer
NameJoAnna B
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI did not get a clear view of the fireball as it was above the eave line of my house. I was able to see the bright light and bottom edge perhaps as it went past the window. Bright enough to make shadows from the tree in the yard as it went overhead. The light was the same color as a bright red/orange/pink sunrise but only flashed for a second. The shadows moved as though the object was traveling from north to south. And it was definitely to the east of our house.
