Reports Report 2263g (Event 2263-2012)

Name Joyce T
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks Looking due west, this fireball was brightly visible against a still light sky. Appearing above the first foothill west of town, it disappeared behind the foothill from my vantage point - so I was not observing it with relation to the horizon, but the foothill.
