Fireball over Lake Allatoona, Cartersville GA

I was with a some friends atop a houseboat after dinner, enjoying the view of Lake Allatoona in Cartersville, Georgia. Our little group is comprised of seniors, aged 54 to 70.

The men had retired and we four ladies were chatting, when Susie said excitedly, "what is that?!!" We all jumped up to see a fireball coming toward us from high over the dam. As it came closer it stopped and hovered, almost as if it had seen us and hesitated, then reversed direction and disappeared quickly. We thought it was going very fast or, perhaps, turned its lights off.

In all my 64 years I had never seen anything like it.
