I saw the one back in the 90's that was seen across a lot of the Northeast. Some friends and I always did this 8 day canoe trip at the end of the summer and we were around a fire at night. I was the only one facing in that direction and it lasted long enough the others were able to turn around and see it. It basically crossed most of the horizon just above it and then looked like it impacted but I think that was just an illusion, we were all sitting there waiting for the boom but it never came. It was considerable distance away.

It was an incredible experience especially given the location and state of mind. My one friend dropped his beer with the comment he was going to bed. We weren't even sure what it was and with only a radio didn't find out until we got home a few days later. It still comes up in conversations today, it's not something you'll forget if you see a big one like that.

Unfortunately I didn't see it live. Good story though.

Hopefully some day you see one, the videos you see of these large ones really don't do them justice. The one we saw pretty much lit up the whole horizon. Like I said we had no idea what it was. Plane, missile, aliens, is the world coming to an end?


It impacted but it was 100 or 150 miles from where we were. Watching it though it looked like it was just a short distance away. I mentioned it looked like we saw it impact but I think that was just optical illusion as it went over the horizon, perhaps it was the beer. It was relatively small what they recovered.

I've seen two or three fireballs like that in my life. It's an amazing sight.
