|Fireball burned me
As i arrived at my home. I got out of my car i heard a loud roaring noise i looked up and i bright fireball shot across the sky only a few meters above me, the heat was so hot that the next day when i awoke my arms were burned. A scar now remains and has not faded over time.
((NUFORC Note: Probably not a serious report. If an incandescent meteor had passed close enough to the witness to scorch his arms, we suspect the burns would have been the least of his concerns, since the resultant shock wave generated by the meteor almost certainly would have killed the witness. PD))
