Name Ken L
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks Storm chaser and sky observer. Have seen fireballs before - this WAS a fireball. Two others saw this - one at my location, and another who arrived at our location soon after. Time is NOT exact. Short light streak, dark gap, then bright spot. No photo or video, very short duration. I was facing it directly, may be able to measure the exact trajectory tomorrow.
