Duration:5 sec
My wife and I were on the East Bay Bike Path near Barrrington RI where we had just stopped riding for a moment. I was looking down and my wife suddendly said "Oooo, look at that". I looked up (looked north and maybe slightly west) and saw a brillant fireball heading nearly straight down. I could only perceive a slight arc. While probably not a extra-terrestrial space craft, it was still enough to make my heart skip. I had never seen a metor during the day - what it must have looked like at night! I was shocked at how long we could observe the object since most metors last just an instant.
