Name Desaree B
Experience Level 4/5
Remarks THIS fireball? was HUGE!! As big as a full moon, falling from the sky. It was SOOOO bright white and had a thin line of (police light) red at the bottom .. kind of like a crescent. It was unlike ANYTHING I've seen before!!!! And I am a regular night sky watcher. I've seen green metorites .. rocket launches .. shooting stars ... and fizzling meteors. But this ... this was different. VERY different and like nothing I've ever seen!!!! I live in Northern California ~ Shasta County ~ Redding, California. (grew up in the Bay Area). I work in the medical field. I love science and everything astrological. Did anyone else see what I saw???????????? What was it??!!!!
