Location: Deerfield Beach, FL
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2-3 min
Shuttle Early?

I don't Believe in Alien craft, I'm reporting this for clarification.

Driving on powerline Rd.(Deerfield Beach) heading North approaching S.W. 10th ST.

Saw a Huge Fireball Streak in the due north sky about 30-40 degress up from horizon.

fireball lasted for a good 30 sec to 1 min. Streak went behind some light clouds and 3 glowing dots emerged in a ">" formation pointing east.then went behind another cloud and came out 2 faint White/Grey dots. I lost sight ot them for about 20 sec, Parking my car. Looked again and saw 2 Very Faint Dots Closer Together. Then as i was wondering if maybe i was looking at a plane or a star, 2 Doughnut like pulses very visible! First thought was a plane crash or a plane losing an engine. Called 911 just to report it Transfered from county to deerfield police dispatch. as I was Describing this event, the county voice interupted and said there was a shuttle launch,in which the deerfield dispach said I witnessed history. I thought cool, but i heard that the shuttle was posponed for weeks. I checked NASA.com and read report that on this day @ 10:00 am they announced that the launch will be postponed until July? I thought wierd so i wrote this. Possibly it wasn't the shuttle , just a rocket Kennendy Sapce center is North of where i live. just thought i'd give input.

((NUFORC Note: We assume that the witness describes above the launch of a Titan IV missile out of Cape Canaveral, which occurred at 20:55 hrs. (Eastern) on this date. The missile apparently was launched to the northeast, so it was visible along the eastern shoreline of the U. S.. PD))
