Fireball Frequesntly Seen In Antioch CA

The instances of this fireball are becoming frequent in our area. My fiance and I have witnessed this fireball about 5 to 7 times now. I have filed a report on here once already for an event on 01/18/02. The same type of fireball object travelling across the sky, this time from east to west. Tonights siting, the object was moving extremely fast. I estimate about 500 NMPH. Altitude is too hard to determine at night. Also this siting tonight was not dropping sparks as the other sitings have done. This is driving us crazy trying to figure out what it is. But, since it is un-identified by us, we consider it a UFO.

((FOLLOW-UP MESSAGE FROM WITNESS))

Peter,

Thanks for responding. My Fiancé and I saw this again tonight and we think we have determined it to be a type of flare. Tonight when we saw it, it seemed to fizzle out and we could see an object floating down thanks to the moon light we have tonight. I guess our only real mystery is who is sending a flare up on a regular basis.

Thanks again and if we ever do encounter anything that can not be explained, we will be sure to let you know, not to mention check your website now and then for some interesting sightings.
