Reports Report 162i (Event 162-2019)

Name Wayne M
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks Made this report after seeing the news tonight with many reports of a fireball this morning. The fireball I saw was at a different time than all the others 5:40am. Also I was facing east and the fireball was moving from the south to the north I think that is different than the other reports. It was very large and bright with a long tail. Have never seen anything like this before.
