Reports Report 4311aw (Event 4311-2017)

Name Chris R
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks This looked almost exactly like the fireball I saw back on November 3, 2014 that a lot of people saw. It seemed brighter than that and I was driving west (hard to give an exact location as a result) and it appeared to be moving in about the same direction I was. I can't say at what angle it started since I first saw it from the top of my windshield and it dimmed as it moved rapidly forward behind a obstructing terrain. I for a second almost thought it was closer to me given the speed and brightness but as it moved towards the horizon that seemed not to be the case. It was a greenish white color that dimmed to just pale green.
