Observer
NameFrank P
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThe time frame is relatively close give or take 15min, I was in such amazement that I didn't think to look. This was 1 of 2 fireballs that I seen that night, though this one was astronomically spectacular in size and color, and the amount of time that the train lasted was mesmerizing. It lit the entire region up. This is the 2nd time I've witnessed a fireball of this magnitude.
