|Bright white fireball with a blue tail over Orange County.
My wife and I were driving on Cerritos Ave. en route to the 605 freeway onramp. A bright white fireball shot down from the sky. Very quick and abrupt. I was the only one to fully witness this quick incident in vivid detail.
My wife saw a flash of brightness from the corner of her eye. Similar to a "shooting star," what I saw was remarkably closer and larger in perspective. It didn't look to be far away in space but nearby in our sky.
The core was bright white and had a glowing aura of blue. The tail appeared blue as well.
It shot somewhat diagonally in a slight south to north direction and disappeared from my vision behind a cluster of trees.
Rather than streaking across the sky, it gave me the impression that it was crashing down.
