Shape: Light
Duration:3 seconds
Large ball of light falling to earth at a incrediable speed.

I was driving north on 63rd, when I saw big bright light falling at an incredible speed. It only lasted for about 2-3 seconds. I was waiting for a explosion because I thought it was going to crash, but there was no explosion.

It happened so fast I could not make sense of what was happening. I don't think it was a plane because of the amazing speed at which the object was moving. Very very strange and yet very cool.

((NUFORC Note: Possible meteor from the Geminid shower?? PD))
