On 9-2-04 at about 22:43 my wife and I were watching tv inside our house when my wife said "hey, hey, hey, look!" and was pointing out our living room window which faces due North. I jumped up and looked outside and witnessed a huge fireball traveling low on the horizon in a straight line from West to East, it then curved downward and disappeared. It was bright and from our house it appeared the size of a basketball, white in color and traveling slow. It also didn't leave a streak or a trail and when it disappeared it didn't appear to break up or anything it just faded out. I am a Security professional with 12 years experience observing and reporting at my job. My wife works in education.
