|Multi-colored fiery ball that created a tail like a meteor; lasted 5 seconds and disappeared.
I was just driving back home from work heading South on US 19. Right in front of me, this streak of multi-colored brightness with a huge tail streaks across US 19 heading east to west towards Dunedin. It was like a missile and it lasted for about 5 second and then just vanished.
It was flying at an angle that would suggest it falling and appeared the way you would think something would catch on fire and create a tail if you threw it.
It wasn't a reflection because I ALWAYS ride with my visor up on my helmet to let air flow in my face and I wear HD anti-reflective lenses in my glasses.
Upon telling my story on my facebook, it turns out that one of my co-workers who drives the same way home and was a minute in front of me saw it as well. Could not have been firework due to size, angle, and demeanor.
We are very close to airports so I definitely saw planes in the sky as well. I literally thought a plane was crashing or I was about to see a mushroom cloud on the ! horizon. I was mentally preparing myself for a shockwave to hit me off my motorcycle.
