Observer
Name Jay B
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks I was 12 mi exactly east of Lone Pine Peak at 4000' elevation. Fireball disappeared precisely behind exact top of Lone Pine Peak 13000 elevation, but no idea how far behind. I expect a meteor landed some where out there. Fireball has substantial angular size, 1/4 - 1/8 that of the sun.
