Location: Owensboro, KY
Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 second
Large, silent fireball speeding toward earth at an angle until I loose sight of it when it went behind some distant trees.

I was driving home from a late movie. It was me and my 7 year old daughter. She wasn't looking in the same direction as me, so she didn't see it. If I would have blinked, I wouldn't have seen it either. It lasted only a split second. I saw a large fire ball with a long flaming tail trailing off the end, zooming toward the earth at about a 60 degree angle. It was silent, and I lost sight of it when it went down behind some trees in the distance. I've never seen anything like it before.
