Reports Report 2495p (Event 2495-2017)

Name Sara G
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks I'm not sure if you could consider it a fireball but it did look like a ball of fire, or rather a flaming coal. I could clearly see the meteor inside the flames that surrounded it; it had a very short "tail" about the size of the meteor. I've never seen anything like it.
