Reports Report 3576c (Event 3576-2017)

Name Gabriel C
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks Difficult to tell distance but the direction in the sky North, slightly northwest. I kept looking at the trail and followed it to see if it was a plane but the trail never continued. It was bright enough to grab my attention during my commute to work in my peripheral vision. I THOUGHT I heard a sound that was similar to a plane, which made me look up but I had headphones on so I can't confirm the noise was from the fireball I saw in the sky. Apologies for the sparse details, did not expect something like that this morning.
