|White and orange fireball seen.
My friend and I were in her car and witnessed a fireball with a tail flying from west to east. The fireball was white and orange, and, from where we were, appeared to possibly have been breaking apart. It seemed to be moving quite fast. We only saw it for approximately 10 seconds, though we may had witnessed it longer had there not been trees above us blocking our view. We attempted to follow it, but when we had initially seen it we were pulling up to stop sign, and by the time we could go, it was too late. My friend and I are both amateur UFO enthusiasts, and I had come to the conclusion that what we had seen might had been a comet, but we marvelled at the size of it. It was rather large. Upon hearing about all the reportings of it, I thought it would be best to also report what we had seen.
NUFORC Note: We assume the witness is addressing the event that occurred that evening, and that was witnessed from Wisconsin to New York, and as far south as Tennessee. We have entered the tinme at 1904 hrs.. PD))
