Location: Santa Rosa, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:~10 seconds
Brilliant fireball observed while driving north on Stony Point Road, Santa Rosa, Ca.

On my way home from work at ~ 5:45-6:00 PM while driving north on Stony Point Road, I saw a very bright fireball moving from east to west in a downward trajectory (~45 degree angle) and well above ground, it appeared to break apart and disappeared.

Happened very quickly, but it was quite noticeable.

Other drivers on the road most likely saw it as well.

((NUFORC Note: Possible meteor. PD))
