Duration: six to seven seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
At dusk, an orange,white,pink,and voilet color fireball traveled totally horizontal west to east,not as fast as a shooting star,and then nothing.

Above is a good description. I was talking to a friend while others were finishing up a volleyball game behind me. I was facing north, my friend was facing me. I would say the fireball was over La Jolla and I was south near clairmont San Diego. I said to my friend,"look at that"! He saw it and was happy I said something about it. He said you should report that to Art Bell.
