Shape: Fireball
Crash down of a red green firebal at 7:10 pm Wed. March 3rd north of Fairfield, Iowa being observed by 4 jets.

My son stepped out for a smoke at 7:10 pm Wednesday March 3rd and happened to see a comet like object crashing to the east of the Fairfield airpor, surrounded by four jet airplanes.

To the eye it appeared about an inch across, was fiery red turning to bright green as it hit.

He expected to see and hear an explosion and sound but there was none.

Many other people driving in its direction must have seen it.

There was no report of it on the local TV news. I notified the papers and they didn't print a story.

It may have been satalite debris that did not burn up completely on reentry and was being tracted by NASA who calculated its crash location and sent the Air Force jets to observe where it hit. And such incidents are kept secret from the public so as not to jeopridise the space program.

My son is 30, a very realistic and practical person who is not into fantacy or the esoteric. He said the lights of the jets in tne night sky were far apart flying north all in the same direction over a broad area prior to impact, then they flew over the site for 15 to 20 minutes. Three of the jets arived together and were joined by a fourth which flew off in a different direction when they left.
