fireball the size of the house on 12/29/1965 about 5:00 pm

in 1965 i was 10 years old .i was slideing down our driveway when a fireball the size of the house flew over.i remember the size because it parrelled the house as it flew past. the night was very cold and it wasnt quiet supper yet so i no the time was around 5:00 pm. the ball was very large and i watched it follow the contour of the earth untill it was out of sight . i watched a documentery last night 1/22/09 on the history channel about the kecsburg case and it was amasing that i might have seen it before it hit the ground .

i have wrote to other people and never got a response.i remember the one odd thing about the fireball and that was the way it was burning .kind of unnatural if that makes any sense. if or please if you have any questions about what i saw i will be more than happey to talk or wright to you .thanks dean burgess
