  1. I remember seeing a bright bluish fireball early one morning in January 2000 in southeast Alabama. I was out on my farm around 4 am and the sky and surrounding area lit up a brilliant bluish-white as if lightning had struck nearby. I looked up and saw a bright bluish-white fireball. It had a long tail and appeared to be low in the sky and moving slowly. After about 3 seconds it faded out. A truly astonishing experience!

  2. In Virginia Beach VA on January 26th around 7:30 PM my sister and I saw light as we were at an intersection.
    Round orb no tail and it looked low…….then it just disappeared. I lost sleep over it.

  3. I saw one near Southport, IN around 4:00pm today, Jan 30. It looked just like some of the above videos. Is there a place I can send a picture?
