Reported: 7/27/2016 10:08:59 PM 22:08
Posted: 8/2/2016
Location: Livermore, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 30 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
Saw a large ball of light traveling West to East in Livermore.

A large, bright light was traveling fast from West to East in a smooth trajectory, but seemed to be falling. It had a trail of some kind, such as what you see come out of a jet. There were no lights on it and it seemed to be burning. There was no sound associated with it. My husband and I have seen meteorites and satellites, but nothing this large and bright.

We were afraid that it would land nearby and cause damage of some kind, as it appeared to be under the clouds.
