Occurred : 3/12/2006 18:00 (Entered as : 03/12/06 18:00)
Reported: 3/21/2006 12:11:56 AM 00:11
Posted: 5/15/2006
Location: Daly City, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 - 10 seconds
Fireball appeared for 5 seconds

I was taking a picture of the moon in that evening and everything was normal while I was holding my camera and trying to focus my picture. However, just about a couple seconds before I was ready to press the "capture" button, I suddenly saw a fireball showing up on my digital camera's screen and I looked at it staying still above the moon for about 5 to 10 seconds and I immmediately captured it before it disappeared immediately after I pressed the button.

At the first place, I thought it was a reflection of the moon, but I immediately took one more picture of the moon after this one and discovered that everything was normal again.

In case of a follow-up contact, please contact me through mail or email. Thanks!
