Fireball falling from sky but slow landed on ground and glowed for about 15 seconds then went out.


((NUFORC Note: Meteors rarely reach ground level, we believe, and if they do, they almost invariably are not seen to be glowing. The outer surface of the meteor usually has cooled, by the time it has fallen through tens of miles of atmosphere. PD))
