Location: Annapolis, MD
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 3-5 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
06:30am 01/09/2019 I was driving to work on Rt 50 west bound on the Severn River Bridge, I looked to my left towards the Naval Academy and saw this meteor what seem like right outside my window, between me and the Naval yard.

It was that close, at least it appeared to be. I saw a fiery tail, traveling from east to west.

It had a very gradual arc, as soon as it looked like it was going to hit and blow up, it fizzled out.

I have never seen one this low in the sky!!!!! The tail wasn't that long either like you normally see on a meteor. Who knows, maybe it was something else.
