|Fireball with fire trail, moving on a southwesterly course then moving in loop back to the northeast and then toward earth
At approxamately 9:46 PM PDT, while driving along I280 near Edgewood Road Exit, I noticed a fireball moving in a southwesterly heading. The fireball was in the southeastern sky. There was a trail behind the fireball, unknown distance. The object moved from a soutwesterly heading to loop back in an upward spiral toward the northeast. At the APEX of the loop back, about every 1-2 seconds an explosion could be seen. The object disappeared below the horizon, with a firetrail still in view as it disappeared.
