Fireball over lakeland.

A bright orange fireball perfectly sphere shaped except for the trail behind it came streaking down, headed north west

it appeared to be very large and close it fell very fast almost straight down slightly angled though seemed larger than a plane to us looked like a meteorite but if it was it was huge

no odd behavior like hovering or blinking it just fell from the sky silently in a blazing glory

it was about 9pm
