Reports Report 5450lo (Event 5450-2017)

Name Susan B
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks I was driving my car at the time and had music on. My focus was on the road, and the sounds of the radio. So, I could not hear anything. If there was smoke or a trail, I did not focus on it because of traffic. I thought it might be a firework until I heard an announcement on the radio this morning. The fireball just happened to occur in my line of vision as I looked ahead down the highway.
