Occurred : 3/5/2008 22:00 (Entered as : 3/5/2008 22:00)
Reported: 3/7/2008 4:45:55 PM 16:45
Posted: 3/31/2008
Location: Southport, NC
Shape: Fireball
Duration:10-14 seconds
We were fishing at night for trout when I looked up in the sky and saw a large fireball moving very rapidly across the sky. I asked my brother to turn and look and he could not believe what he was seeing.

It lasted for at least 10 seconds, maybe 15 seconds.

The time was 10:04 pm on 3/5/2008 (Weds night).

It appeared to be a round mass with a firetail, maybe a meteor? Have there been any other reports of anything like this near Southport NC ? Sincerely, Two Fisherman
