Reports Report 51bw (Event 51-2017)

Name Jason W
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks I was in bed watching TV and this extremely bright, beautiful fireball caught my eye, I wasnt even looking out the patio door, I immediately jumped out of bed, grabbed my cell to video it at the patio door but there was no time. It was very cold out side and the windows and doors were closed so if there was any noise I didn't hear it. It was definitely a rush to have witnessed something like that.
