Reports Report 4635hk (Event 4635-2016)

Name Joseph F
Experience Level 4/5
Remarks I witnessed this fireball while sitting on the open top level section of a Walt Disney World ferry in middle of the lagoon on my way back to the parking lot. We were about half way across when my whole family saw this event. It pulsed very brightly as it fell, leaving a sparkling trail. We couldn't have had a better view of the entire fall.
