Location: Kilauea, HI
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
I witnessed a large blue-colored firefall with orange tail falling from the sky at a 35 degree angle, duration 5 seconds.

At approx. 4:30 a.m. I was in my vehicle and had just entered the roadway, traveling in a northerly direction, when instantaneously the sky all around me lit up, from stars and blackness to BLUE. I knew the light source was coming from behind me and turned in my seat to see a huge, blue fireball, with yellow orange tail, falling from the sky at an angle of approximately 35 degrees. Guessing at it's size and proximity, I felt that the object appeared to be headed toward land and I presume it did touch down on Kauai. Entire duration of this event was approximately 5 seconds.
