Location: Sacramento, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 seconds
Giant fireball like that seen in recent singapor video appears than vanishes.

I walked out my front door and seen a bright large yellow (1)fireball (1/30th scale of the moon) traveling from north to east moving in a 60 degree angle, apox 90 degrees on the horizon. The tail was the length of a blimp seen at ground level and sparked yellow white. It appeared to have came from no where and than vanished, the last thing you could see was sparks from the tail. The remaining fireball seemed to disappear into a dark veil. A recent video of a UFO seem on the web site shows a UFO in the same precise alt. and traveling the same precise angle and direction, and demostrating the same physical behavior and resembled the physical description, my view of scale image was smaller than seen in the video and less duration.

((NUFORC Note: We wonder if the witness is describing the dramatic fireball that passed over northern California on November 25, 2001, at approximately 20:40 hrs.. However, that fireball was reported as green, not yellow. However, the observer is a male, giving rise to the possibility of color "blindness," although given his profession, he should know whether he has a color perception problem. We will leave the date as recorded by this witness. PD))
