Location: Provo, UT
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 1-3 secs
Characteristics: The object left a trail
Fireball falling from the sky

Me and some friends were driving from Salt Lake to Provo going south on I-15, when we saw what looked like a fireball fall almost straight down out of the sky. It was an orangish color, but left a trail that turned blue. It went down behind the mountains, so we couldn't see what happened to it or get a better look at it. Just wondering if anyone saw it or knows what it is. Thanks.

((NUFORC Note: We believe this sighting may have been of the same object reported to us by the U. S. National Weather Service, and by other witnesses in Colorado, Wyoming, and perhaps other states, as well. PD))
