Reports Report 4757bn (Event 4757-2018)

Name Dria M
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I was driving Rt 12 and from my perspective the fireball seemed to be just past Clinton, MI. It streaked almost perpendicularly, going only very slightly to the right of my vision, down from the zenith to the horizon, with a long green trail. It may have burned up when it reached the tree line as it got very large and bright and then it disappeared.
