Location: Santa Barbara, CA
Shape: Fireball
A sudden fireball flash of an obvious head and tail streaked across Santa Barbara Bay from east to west. It may have been an asteroid, but it was seen while we were driving south on the 101 fwy prior to dusk. It seemed to disappear right across the city to the ocean. I have been lucky as this has been my second sighting within months. The first was in Bend, Oregon also driving on the fwy. before dusk on 12/3/08.
