|Fireball, illuminating as dropping to ground 30 degrees inclination from horizontal
Travelling on Middle Road Westbound towards Davenport approximately 1/2 mile from Christie road subdivision round-about.
Large fireball, approximately as big as my fist at arms length, 30 degrees inclination from the horizon, dropped straight down from the sky. Became brighter as it descended. Very bright, very disconcerting and strange, not the normal path of meteor.
Checked clock read 8:05 pm, remarked to wife about what happened, looked back at clock and it read 8:02 pm.
