Reports Report 31dg (Event 31-2019)

Name Tiffany C
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks It caught my attention as I was driving. It was a bright fireball that came downwards and fizzled out in the horizon. I'm not sure if there was any sound because I had my music on in my vehicle. There was a short smoke trail.
