Name Shelly W
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I believe I saw (in passing) this fire ball land in Hampstead/Plaistow line in New hampshire. I was certain at first that someone was playing with fireworks in the woods. but the brightness and angel it feel led me to see if anyone else had seen anything. I was told later that many many sightings had occurred.
