Winessed 5 fireb Witnesssed 5 fireballs streaking across the sky in the Atlanta area on 12/14/99 between 21:30 and 22:30. About 5 seconds each from different directions. alls streaking across the sky in the Atlanta area between 21:30 and 22:30 on 12/14/99. Came from different directions and lasted only about 5 seconds each.
Saw a bright fireball in the night sky about 21:30 in the north Atlanta area. It was Yellowish-orange with a little blue on one side. Very bright and moving incredibly fast- much faster than the planes in the area. It appeared out of nowhere and disappeared from view within about 5 seconds. Biggest, brightest, fastest moving thing I've ever seen in the night sky. I thought the meteor showers were over for now, but that's what I would have guessed it to be. Went inside. Came out an hour later and saw two more within a few minutes of each other. They came from different directions and were slightly smaller and less bright than the first one-or perhaps a little further away. My husband saw a fourth one- more like a flash of light. We then saw a fifth one, much smaller and white instead of yellow- looked more like a shooting star. I am guessing there were probably many others which we didn,t see, since I was indoors after the first one, and didn't come baack outside for a hour, when we saw the other four. Also, there have been heavy contrails made in this area every day in x and circular patterns- all day. When I drove from Atlanta to Nashville last week, there was heavy spraying the whole way- kept hoping to outdrive them but they were all the way to Nashville-even over the rural and mountainous areas. What,s going on up there? Lots ofpeople getting sick and staying sick in both areas, as well as in Virginia where there is also heavy "chemtrail" spraying- They're calling it the "100 day cough" in Virginia. Any connection between all these things?. I have heard about UFO's before, but never was sure I believed it. But these "fireballs" were really there-quite beautiful actually.
NUFORC Note--The annual Geminid Meteor Shower, which was particularly bright this year, peaked on this night, and the night before. The direction of flight of the object described here is not inconsistent with a meteor from that event.)
