RemarksMy wife and I were laying in the bed of my truck gazing into the sky and saw several shooting stars. Then we saw the fire ball. It caused the truck to slightly shake. We could not believe what we had just seen and have not told anyone because people would have thought us to be crazy. I hope you can confirm our report and respond. Thank
