ObservaçõesI thought for a split second that this fireball was actually a mortar firework that was shot off within a few hundred feet of my observation location. I then realized that it had a perfectly straight trajectory and was coming downwards (from my perspective). It was then that I gasped in my realization. This was the second time that I've witnessed a fireball of this magnitude. The other that I have seen was on January 9th, 2019, and was even more significant. I also submitted a report to you all for that observation. I believe I am the only person who took a video of the January 9th, 2019 meteoroid and turned my recording to the fireball since it was so significant and long-lasting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GY7AfyVytvY Thanks for your work in meteors!
