Reported: 8/20/2016 11:09:29 AM 11:09
Posted: 8/25/2016
Location: Grass Valley, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
The bright light did not have characteristics of an asteroid and it descended, like it was falling, rather than streaking.

I was driving north on Hwy 49, towards the town of Grass Valley, when I witnessed a very bright light high in the night sky, descending extremely fast toward earth. It happened very quickly, and due to mountain terrain and tree coverage, I lost sight of it.

I did not see any fire or hear any explosion.
