Location: Margate, FL
Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 seconds
Bright light moving quickly towards the ground vanishing behind some trees. NOT a shooting star.

I was standing outside of a friends house at around one in the morning to be exact. It looked like a shooting star but it was a lot larger and moved a lot slower than one. It was bright white, moving down vertically towards the ground. It vanished behind some trees. I didn't hear any noise and could not tell how far away it was but it left me in complete shock. It was the wierdest thing I've ever seen. About a year ago I saw fireball type of oject slowly flying across the sky, it had a trail. I've tried to look up both events but have found no information. If you've also witnessed these events here in Margate or anywhere close by please post.
