Observer
NamePeter Q
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThe fireball became visible as it cleared the hospital 10 stories) blocking my view directly west. The fireball was low and moving slowly (ca. 100 mph). It remained visible until it passed behind the power plant to my south-southwest heading towards the detroit River, Grosse Ile and LaSalle Ontario. The fireball was close enough to observe the undulation of the flames in the tail and moving slowly enough that i anticipated I would hear the impact. I stopped my truck, rolled down the window and turned off the radio. I counted out loud second intervals until I anticipated impact based on the trajectory and then an adequate amount of time to await the report but I did not hear or feel anything, for more than 4 minutes. That made me think the fireball impacted into the water of Lake Erie .
