This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2445-2021
Observer
NameCarol H
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis was amazing! It truly looked like it was a fireball falling vertically, not shooting across the sky. I was indoors, so could not tell you if there was any noise associated with it. The lower part of my view is obscured by trees, so the elevation at which I lost sight of this is when it went behind the trees. Also, I just happened to catch this while sitting near the window, so it may have been visible higher in the sky than when I first noticed it.
