Fireball Falling From The Sky!!
On Monday, November 14th, 2011 around 7pm central time over Owensboro KY, me and my husband witnessed a large fireball falling out of the sky. My husband saw it first and said it just appeared out of nowhere. He ran inside and yelled for me to come look, and I happened to have my phone in hand and after my initial shock of "what is THAT??!!", I took the picture you see here.
At first we thought it was a plane that had caught on fire, but there was no noise.
Then we waited for an astroid impact (but clearly that didn't happened either).
-I'd say the event lasted approx 10 seconds. The object looked like a smallish-sun plummeting at an angle towards Earth. It was round and engulfed in flames.
-The perception is difficult to judge based on the image, but we estimate that the object would have landed approx 30 minutes south of where we live.
We have been watching the local news and social networks, but apparently we are the only ones who saw it!
-I cropped and enlarged the image to 300% so you can see it a little better and to chop out the other lighting in the picture from houses, etc. -(btw, The large white light is a streetlamp) -I apologize for the picture quality, I am still surviving with a 1st generation iphone. lol To tell you the truth, I'm surprised it captured the event at all!
I would love to know what this was! I have been researching but can't find anything!
