Reports Report 51cl (Event 51-2017)

Experience Level 1/5
Remarks I run six days a week starting at approximately 4:40 a.m. I was running eastbound on 102nd street a short distance from Central Avenue. At approximately 5:20 a.m. I saw the bright fireball across the eastern sky traveling north to south. At first I had no idea what it could be, the light was very bright, then it continued for a few seconds and burned out. I did not hear any sounds associated with this sighting.
