Observer
Name Rebekah W
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks The fireball disappeared behind our housing complex, but I saw it for approximately 7 seconds. The ball was white with a purple-ish trail. It had a couple smaller "fireballs" or debris behind it, but those only lasted a second or two and were white.
