Location: North Palm Springs, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3-5 seconds
Fireball traveling from Palm Springs, Ca. towards Joshua Tree National Monument at 4AM on May 11, 2011.

While traveling east on Interstate 10, my husband and I observed a fireball cross the freeway from South to North at a high rate of speed. It looked low in the sky.

From our perspective, it was about the size of a beachball (not tiny like a star). It disappeared toward Joshua Tree National Monument. We thought that it could be a meteor. There were other people traveling on the freeway at that time and they would have seen it also.
