Reports Report 3582j (Event 3582-2017)

Name Jeffrey W
Experience Level 4/5
Remarks As I was getting off I-93 North at Exit 20 in Tilton the fireball came right over the top of me and into view out my front windshield. It was fairly bright and a mixture of blue interior with green on the fringes and a white tail. This fireball seemed really low in the sky and was traveling quite quickly. I honestly feel like it could have hit the ground in Sanbornton, NH or New Hampton, NH. Would love to hear back on the calculation of altitude. It seemed very low and close. The shape was somewhat odd. Like a fat teardrop with a short stubby tail of white.
