The ufo appeared as a falling star except that it was falling more straight down instead of arching across the sky. It was blue W/Blue tail.appearing to the west starting about 60 degrees above the horizon before it diapeared befor hitting the horizion.

Later in the night at 02:10 I witnessed another ufo falling from the sky. this time it was white w/ white tail. It was approx. 15 degrees further to the north from the last sighting. As this fire ball was falling, it made an arch in it's trigectory. A slight bend in its line if travel as it neared the horizion line. It disapeared before hitting the horizion. Four minutes later at 02:14 Dec 14, 1998 I saw a third falling fireball. it was white W/ white tail. It was falling at about 280 degrees. it too disapeared before hitting the horizion line. It fell in a straight line. and also appeared in the night sky at about 60 degrees to the horizion. these fireball appeared to be falling as I have stated through out this report. Most falling stars that I have witnessed arched all across the sky. These appeared to be droping more than falling stars. (meteorite's) The night sky was partly cloudy. But stars could be seen clearly.
