Reports Report 4144w (Event 4144-2017)

Experience Level 1/5
Remarks The angle of viewing looked like it was heading down towards the horizon. When I saw this fireball, It from my perspective was a big as a house in the sky with a white train following at least twice the length like a jagged dagger. It was something that I will chock up to a life experience viewing.
