Location: Sonoma, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 Sec.
Fireball over the Sonoma Valley

It looked like a fireball shooting across the sky,

In my backyard with my dad, I went outside and was staring at the sky and all of a sudden this fireball looking object went over out house, from southwest to northeast, and I said "dad come look at this", he came out into the backyard and by the time he looked up the object was gone, he thought I was making it up,

The object didn't look like a meteor, because a meteor is too hard to see with the naked eye, this you could actually see the tail on the object for about a second or two, It dissapeared out of sight,

Sonoma, CA is in a valley covered by hills and moutains, so it is hard to see objects sometimes because of it's low elevation, so after the object disapeared, it looked like it went behind the hills, most likley Northeast.
