I saw a reddish/orange fireball falling from the sky. My sighting was facing north, similar to where I have seen prior rocket launchings from Cape Canaveral. I ran outside to watch it and it was gone. It happened very quickly and caught my attention because it was very bright and quite large, much larger than a shooting star. I immediately entered "fireball in the sky" in Google to see if anyone else had a sighting and noticed several reports and locations on various dates.
