Duration:5 sec
I saw a bright object with a short tail that appeared to be falling from the sky on a trajectory toward the earth in Burbank, CA. I was driving on the I5 through Burbank, then exited at Buena Vista St. at approx. 9:10pm on Tues. 8/26/03 when I observed this object which resembled a falling star but appeared to be much much closer. As I was still traveling about 10 mph at that time, the object was no longer visible once it was low enough on the horizon. The really strange thing was that after a few minutes I overheard Mr. KABC start talking about objects he had been seeing every day on his way to work in the past several days. Was this a coincidence or what?!?

((NUFORC Note: Please see a second report of apparently the same event, as seen from Poway, CA. Possible meteor, we believe. PD))
