Observer
Name Diane K
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks Approximately 8 of us were standing in the street having a candle light vigil for my Step-mom who passed away on 11/28/17. Everyone looking in that direction saw It. It was a very bright flash of light unlike anything any of us if ever seen. We giggled I.T a couple of days later and that is when we found out It was a fireball
