Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 minutes
Two fire balls in Jackson, TN

I witnessed a fireball travelling southwest for quite some time before finally fading out of sight and I tried to capture on video, however I couldn't. But shortly after the first, a second appeared and I caught that one on video while talking to a friend on the phone during the whole experience. It looked like a meteor but had a relatively short tail and lasted much longer than anything I've seen before. It faded out of view before it burned out, not that it did. It was clear weather and clear skies in west Tennessee at the time.
