Duration:5-10 minutes
Fireballs over San Diego.

On December 30, 2013, between 6 & 7 pm, I was getting off the 163 freeway at the Genesee Exit in San Diego.

I looked to the east and saw what in my mind was an airplane on fire. I saw some lights but and what I thought was an engine on fire on the plane. It was glowing bright orange and it just seemed too big to be what we thought we were seeing.

My mother and I watched as the “engine” fell off, and I thought there was going to be a plane crash. Instead, the bright orange fireball just seemed to stop and then broke into three bright glowing orange fireballs.

We drove several minutes trying to keep them above the tree line so we could see them.

Finally, after what seemed to be more than 5 minutes since we first saw the glowing fireball, we were unable to see them above the tree line.
