Fireball on Tybee Island, GA

I am a law enforcement officer. I have also been an investigator in property crimes, robbery, and homicide.

My wife and I were at the beach to observe the Super Moon on Sunday June 23, 2013 at approximately 8:45pm.

We observed a fireball very slowly moving across the sky. It was very windy yet the object didn't seem to be affected by the wind. We thought it may have been a Chinese lantern, but it seemed to move along its course at a very slow definitive course.
