Name Zach D
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks I was at the Iron Mountain Grille in Cooksburg, Pennsylvania on vacation with family. I was running towards the the east of the parking lot when I looked up and saw a blue ball of flaming rocks fly through the sky and disappear almost immediately after. It lasted around 1 second and had a glowing trail that dissipated shortly after the fireball was gone (less than one second after).
