Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 seconds
Fireball passes overhead, shiny disc appears and lands

An enormous fireball zipped overhead, leaving a trail behind it, and apparently landed on the ground. Several citywide blackouts and electronic disturbances took place in the hours prior to this happening.

I was driving along I-35 around 7:43PM, when I saw a massive spherical ball of yellow light moving along the sky leavng behind a blue-white trail behind. Sparks were emanating from it similar to those a large Tesla coil produces. The light then disappeared and a smaller metallic object appeared where the light was. The object was a lustrous disc or saucer-shaped object and appeared to land west of I-35. Hundreds of people saw this.

There were massive and alternating blackouts in Austin 12-24 hours before this took place. Several radio towers were also malfunctioning that day, leading to certain television programs such as CBS not airing.

Please investigate this incident. I am shocked and frightened by what I saw.

((NUFORC Note: A well written report, but we wonder whether it is a serious-minded, and sincere, report. If anyone knows anything about the alleged blackouts, or about the event itself, we would welcome additional reports. PD))
