I saw the November 16th event. To me it was a fireball. It moved from west to east.

I was running in the park. There were no street lights. I do wear glasses for near-sightedness and was not wearing them. I looked up to check the traffic and the object caught my eye. I was alone. A car did pass by when I was looking. There was a fireball in the sky. It had a long tail. Holding my hand at a distance, the tail was longer than my hand. The main part was throwing off debris. They quickly burned out. There were two smaller objects trailing the main object. They were keeping pace with the main object. In respect to actual meteorites the object appeared to be moving rather slow. The object did not change direction at all while I was watching it. It appeared to be a natural, though rare event. There was an event filmed at a high school game in Pittsburgh several years ago, that this fireball reminded me of. It would be interesting to see if it came down anywhere on land.
