Location: Statesville, NC
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5minutes
Very large Fireball shoots across sky.

My brother was driving on interstate 40,heading east. We were about mile marker 150 coming from Statesville to Winston-Salem. When out of the northern sky we saw a very large fireball with long tails of fire, headed towards the south,right in front of us.It was very bright red and blue with orange flames . We thought it was a Jumbo jet we had never seen anything like this. When I got home I called the police and they called to Yadkinville police and I told them what we had seen. Almost 2or3 weeks later another sighting of the same thing happened again in a town close by where we saw it, and it was on the news people saw the firball hovering over some trees and they thought a plane had crashed. But they never found anything!!!!!
